**Prerequisites**. MATH 2210 OR MATH 1260 OR MATH 1280

**Textbook**. *Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Fifth Edition* by David C. Lay et al, ISBN 978-0-321-98238-4 and
ISBN 0-321-98238-X.

**Supplement**:
*Student Study Guide for Linear Algebra and Its Applications* 5th Edition, David C. Lay el (2015).
ISBN-13: 978-0321982575 and
ISBN-10: 0321982576.

**Reference**:A fundamental textbook is
*Linear Algebra, fourth edition* by Gilbert
Strang, ISBN 978-0-980232-71-4.

The book is used in MIT's OpenCourseWare project. There are video
lectures and sample exams with solutions for Strang's book on the MIT website:
OpenCourseWare
Course 18.06 Linear Algebra.

**Course Description**. Euclidean space, linear systems, Gaussian
elimination, determinants, inverses, vector spaces, linear
transformations, quadratic forms, least squares and linear
programming, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization. Includes
theoretical and computer lab components.

**Technology**.

Course announcements may be made via email. You are responsible for
monitoring your University assigned email address. No notes, books,
calculators or computers may be used during exams. Weekly homework
assignments are to be submitted on paper in class. Answer checks may
be done by computer assist, when that is possible (maple, mathematica,
matlab, scilab, ruby, R, python, C, C++).

There will be a computer lab component of the course which will
require use of the Maple Computer Algebra System. Maple is available
in the Math Department computer labs, most departmental computer labs,
the Union computer labs and the Marriott Library computer labs . Login
information is available at the Math Department student computer labs
in the Math Center, located on the lowest level between buildings JWB
and LCB.

**Quality and Quantity of Work**.

You are expected to conduct yourself in a professional manner. This
includes classroom etiquette, email correspondence, and written
reports such as homework, projects, labs and exams.

**Submitted work** is expected to be neat, legible, and clearly
written. Suggestions for writing reports can be found **Here**.

**University policy** 6-100 Section 2:

*"A university credit hour shall represent approximately three clock
hours of the student's time a week for one semester. "*

The average work load is two hours outside of class for every hour
spent in class. This is a four credit class, so please plan to spend
approximately eight hours outside of class every week studying and
doing homework. The assigned homework problems are the *minimum*.
Beyond the minimum, expect to continue working similar problems until
they become routine.

**Homework**. Weekly homework assignments will be submitted on
paper in class. Late homework will be accepted with an excuse acceptable to the university administration (illness, interview,
marriage, funeral). Extra credit problems may be applied to correct
scores from missing work. Homework is scored **complete** or **not
complete**. Scores of 50 percent or higher are considered to be **complete**.

**Homework Packages**. A package is collected every Friday
beginning in Week 2 and ending in the last week of classes. This
package is sent to a grader, who decides the credits. Work not in the
package sent to the grader is recorded as a zero. Extra credit work
can cancel the zeros.

**Extra Credit**. There is a limited selection of extra credit
problems, independent of the book, available **Here**.

These problems can replace missed homework problems.

**Computer Projects**. There are six small computer lab projects, with individual due dates.

**A Semester Group Project** is organized by group leaders
in the class, by
agreement with the instructor. Once a group is formed, deadline February 3, then others may
join it or leave it, with agreement from the group leader. A group
size of one is fine. Some **topics and sample projects**
can be found on the **Projects Page** **Here**.

The semester group project is due in final form by Monday May 2, by email in PDF format or paper format under the door 113 JWB.

**Exams**. There are two **midterm exams**, February 24 and
April 7. The comprehensive **final exam** is on Friday April 28
from 7:30am to 10:00am. All exams are in the regular classroom AEB 320.

Exam samples will be supplied.

**Grading**.

Homework 15%

Computer Labs 10%

Two Midterms 30%

Semester Group Project 15%

Final Exam 30%

Grading Scale: The internally-used scale is uses GPA increments, which step 1/3 from 0.0=E to 4.0=A. Briefly, A=95, B=82, C=67, D=52. In detail:

A = 95-100, A- = 90-94, B+ = 85-89, B = 80-84, B- = 75-79, C+ = 70-74, C = 65-69, C- = 60-64, D+ = 55-59, D = 50-54, D- = 45-49, E = 0-44.
