- standard-Diagonalization:
I can diagonalize a matrix and show and explain its usefulness.

- any of the problems from 8.4.17-23.
- 8.4.14. Also find the matrix raised to the 10th power.
- hint: there's a connection to the diagonalized version to raised to the 10th power.

- Show how diagonalization helps understand example 4 on page 332.

- ranked the 6 problems with the 2 having to do with systems of linear differential equations getting the most votes
- worked on the Newton's second law expression for both masses
- talked about times when each spring would be exerting a force
- talked about it as a matrix and what the eigenvector/value tools bring to it
- a lot of focus on the notion of resonance

- had a quiz on the "raise a matrix to a power"
