Homework is due at 5:00PM on the due date. There is a submission box in the TA meeting room (67-112 Engineering 4). Late homework will not be accepted.

Exercise numbers with prefix 'T’ refer to exercises in the textbook Vectors, Matrices, and Least Squares. Exercise numbers with prefix 'A’ refer to the collection of additional exercises. MATLAB files for the additional exercises can be found in the data file directory.

Homework solutions are posted on the CCLE course website. Homework grades are posted on MyUCLA. The graded homework will be returned by the TAs in the discussions.
