Rhea Section for MA375 Professor Walther, Spring 2012

Welcome to the MA 375 course page. Preferred Browser is Firefox.

[Category:MA375Spring2012Walther] at the bottom of the page.

OTHERWISE NO CREDIT ! (If you use the "Create a child page" button, this should happen automatically...)


(See more below in Miscellaneous)

First time? Read this general note

corner/How to get started

  • Getting started
    • To start, click the "Help" button above and read what's there.
    • To edit pages, first log in (with your purdue account to create pages. Then click "edit" (under "Page" above) and remember to click "Save Page" after you are done editting.).
    • To get a quick idea what works how, click "edit" on this page to see how to do the things visible on this page.
    • Note that the "edit" mode has a spell-checking feature: look for red-underlined stuff.
  • Creating pages
    • To create a new page named "B" from a page A, go to edit page A and insert the text [[B]]. (Note that "B" is like a web address for a webpage. Each page also has a name, but you can call the link anything (like fancy_title) by typing [[B|fancy_title]] rather than just B. After saving, find the new red link on page A that appeared. When you click it, you'll note you are now on page B (which of course is empty at this point).
    • NOTE: if the "new" link comes out blue, instead of red, you chose a title of an existing page and did not create a new one. The blue link gets you simply to the already existing one. Use distinctive names for your new creations!
    • If you place "Category:MA375Spring2012Walther" enclosed by square brackets on top of a new page it will be parsed by the system as belonging to this course. It can then be searched (for) in a meaningful way.
  • Advanced Rhea techniques
    • You can look at other Rhea pages by clicking "main page" and then "course pages". Especially the ECE pages will get you an idea where one can take Rhea...
    • Do you want to display pages in other pages?

Your turn! A bonus point opportunity

Students in MA375 (Walther) have the opportunity to earn up to a 5% bonus by contributing a Rhea page on a subject related to linear algebra. To pick a subject, simply write your name next to it.
