Default Re: HW6 - Q 2 thru 6 - make sure you apply abs() to the last 2 features!

Hello Catherine:

I share your pain. Last week I lost 2 points because I used 0.1 for the value of eta when it should have been 0.01 (I missed that extra zero). In retrospect, the important thing is that we learn. I for one learned about the importance of choosing a proper learning rate (eta). You perhaps learned that including the terms without the absolute value brackets gave you some redundant variables, which in turn affected the possibility of getting the inverse matrix right... (?). Anyways, sorry about your lost points.
