Installation of Julia

You will need to install Julia, and various packages by carefully following the detailed instructions here. (Note that you do not need to separately install the Jupyter notebook -- it will be installed for you as part of the installation process. It is possible to use a pre-existing installation, but we recommend against it. This will install a new, separate copy of it.)

Office hours

TBD

Evaluation

  • 5 problem sets, lowest score dropped. 25% for each of the other 4 problem sets.

  • Released on Tuesday and due the following Tuesday until May 5.

  • To pass, you must submit at least 4 problem sets with passing grades

  • No final exam

Problem sets consist of coding and will be submitted online.

Windows users

If you use Windows, please download Git for Windows here

Getting the files

To get the files, use git from the command line (or from a GUI), as follows

  • Clone the repository once with
git clone https://github.com/mitmath/6S083

This will create a new directory called 6S083 with the matierials.

  • Update it to pull in new changes
git pull

This needs to be executed from within the directory. (Use cd to change directory.)
