Here is a sampling of topics people in past quarters have investigated in their second projects. The purpose of this list is to help you come up with Project Two ideas. It is okay to work on project topics that others have done: everyone is different, and the projects always come out different.

Some comments on the Milgram/Travers paper assignment.

January 4, 2020

Welcome to Math 381 A, Winter quarter 2020.

For those students looking for an add code, I do not overload my courses. If there are opening in the first week, you can add yourself to the course. No adds will be allowed after one week (i.e., starting 10/2/19). There are no add codes.

The first writing assignment will be posted soon.

You will need to install lpsolve to solve LPs in this course. You can start here. The download site is here. You may also want to read the information in the right-hand column about installing lpsolve on Macs or PCs.

For Macs, if you are running the latest OS, you may need to install lpsolve using HomeBrew, which is a very useful tool in itself. Once you have installed Homebrew, you can install lpsolve with the commands

brew tap brewsci/science
brew install lp_solve
executed one at a time on the command line in Terminal.
