First Day, Part III


At least from my point of view, MATH 365 went well.

We started things off with the Markov Dance, and the numbers cooperated, giving us the same distribution after several steps, whether we started with a uniform distribution, or all clustered at one point. The same: I couldn't have planned it any better.

People were more than happy to tackle the analysis of the underlying equations, and with the help of a few stalwart volunteers, we managed to pick apart our first linear algebra application.

Well done to everyone in the class! (And for those of you in the class reading this, please feel free to log on and post your own perspective.)

More to come later, after I've had a chance to digest.
