This section presents problem sets with solutions and MATLAB® homework assignments. The problem sets are assigned from the text:

Working together is allowed on problem sets. However, you must write up your results individually and indicate the names of your collaborators. Use of existing solutions is not allowed.

Note: Professor Strang has published a new textbook that is being used for the current teaching of this course on the MIT campus as well as for Mathematical Methods for Engineers II (18.086). Information about the new book can be found at the Wellesley-Cambridge Press Web sites, along with a link to Prof. Strang's new "Computational Science and Engineering" Web page developed as a resource for everyone learning and doing Computational Science and Engineering.
