Linear Algebra Applications for Team Presentations

Team presentations: Prepare a presentation on the application assigned to your team. Your goal is to introduce your classmates to the topic and to prepare them for the homework exercises assigned from the section. You may use examples from the text, or you may find or make up your own. The first presentations will be given in class on Monday, Feb. 14 (A, B, C), and Friday, Feb. 18 (D). Each team member must participate.
