Welcome to Math 152. If you are looking for the main course website, then please go HERE. If you are looking for the Lab homepage, then you have come to the right place.
Hey guys, reading week is over, and hopefully you all had fun and adventures.
Several people have been asking how reading week interacts with the whole "take a lab every two weeks" rule.
If you are in the first batch of labs (refered to as EVEN on the timetable on this website) you will have a lab this week. If you had a lab just before reading break, then you will not have one this week.
During your time in Math 152, you will be required to take part in 6 "Lab sessions" designed to help you get familiar with MATLAB- a software package designed to solve large Matrix equations. You will attend lab sessions every second week, and with each lab session you will be expected to hand in a short assignment. A TA will be at the lab to collect homework and provide assistance.
There are 24 lab sessions, labeled L2A to L2Z. It is very important that you attend your own lab session- if everyone turned up at the time that best suited them, then some labs would be empty while others ran out of computers. Also your tutors will not accept homework handed in during the wrong lab session.
Click here to find out when and where your lab is.
Each fortnight you will be expected to hand in an assignment along with your lab. You must hand in your assignment before the end of the lab session you are assigned to. These assignments will sometimes take time and experimentation, thus it is recommended that you start them before your one hour lab session (except for your first assignment). All Lab assignments will be made available early in the term, on this webpage, so you may approach them at whatever pace you wish, as long as they are finished before their hand in date.
Your Lab Password:
To access a computer in the lab, you will need a login ID and password. Your login ID is the first 8 characters of your first name, middle name and last name written together without any spaces and all lowercase.
Your Name: John Xavier Woo
Your Login: johnxavi
Your password is the character S ( uppercase required ) followed by the first seven digits of your student number.
Student Number: 31415926
If your login does not work, it may be because another student's name generates the same login as yours. If this happens, talk to your TA to get your correct login details.
Your lab TA is there to help you explore the Matlab software, and help with both technical and conceptual issues (IE, if either you or the computer is confused, your tutor is there to help.)
A List of TA emails will soon be avaliable on this site, possibly with a brief description.
Name: Alastair Jamieson-Lane
Description: Hey Team- I'm the head Lab T.A. for this course. That's a fancy title which means I end up doing more paperwork, and odd jobs around here (such as scratching together this webpage). I'm from New Zealand and have just arrived at UBC to start my Masters in evolutionary game theory. If you have any questions which you can't take to your Lab TA for any reason, feel free to email me (or Ozgur Yilmaz if it is very serious)
Name: Bernhard Konrad
Description: Hi, I am a third year PhD student in Mathematical Biology at UBC. I use MatLab to study HIV dynamics within an infected individual, and how treatment could be improved. I look forward to seeing you in the labs.
Name: Nabil Fadai
Description: Hi! My name's Nabil, and I'm a 4th year student in Honours Mathematics. I focus mainly on applied Mathematics, especially relating to Differential Equations. As many Differential equations are impossible to solve (exactly) by hand, it is important to use numerical approximations and computer software, such as Matlab, to make sense of these equations. I wish you all the best of luck as you begin your journey into the fascinating world of MatLab
Name: Mengdi Hua
Description: Hi, I am a master student entering the 2nd semester and will be your TA for sessions L2C and L2D. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about our exciting labs.
