# VS265: Homework assignments

### From RedwoodCenter

Students are encouraged to work in groups, but turn in assignments *individually*, listing the group members they worked with.

**Submission instructions**:
email both a PDF of your solutions as well as your code (.m or .py files) as attachments to:

vs265 AT rctn.org

You can hand in a paper copy of your solutions before class, but you still have to email your code to the address above before the assignment is due.

# Resources

## Matlab

Student version of Matlab ($50) may be obtained here.

There is an excellent guide to Matlab by Kevin Murphy on the web: http://code.google.com/p/yagtom/

## Python

Fernando Perez at the Brain Imaging Center has an excellent set of resources on Python for scientific computing. You will likely find the "Starter Kit" particularly useful.

Also, a great starting point for all scientific python is using Anaconda [1]
