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

**Required Textbook**. *Linear Algebra and Its Applications,
Fifth Edition* by David C. Lay et al, ISBN-13: 978-0-321-98238-4
or ISBN-10: 0-321-98238-X.

**Optional 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.

**Optional Reference**: A fundamental linear
algebra 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.

**CANVAS** will be used primarily to communicate grades on
homework, exams and computer labs. It is not used as a means of
communication, so please send messages by email only, using the
address found **Here**.

**Course announcements** will 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++).

**Computer Labs**.

There is 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 maybe
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 solving similar problems
until they become routine.

Homework.

Weekly homework assignments are submitted on paper in class.

AHomework Packageis collected every Friday from Week 1 to Week 15.

The package is sent to a grader, who scores each homework problem ascomplete(100) ornot complete(50).

Work not in the package is recorded as azero(0).

Late homework is acceptable with an excuse recognized by the university administration: illness, interview, marriage, funeral.

Extra Credit.

Each missed homework problem can be replaced by submitting an extra credit problem.

DetailsHere.

Computer Projects.

There are six small computer lab projects, with individual due dates. All projects start with aTuesdaymeeting in computer classroom LCB 115 at 7:30am.

Semester Group Project.

Projects are organized by group leaders in the class, by instructor agreement.

Once a group is formed,deadline February 2, then others may join it or leave it, with agreement from the group leader. A group size of one is fine.

Projects are published PDF and computer source files at the course WEB site. You will never submit the project on paper.

Sometopics and sample projectscan be found on theProjects PageHere.

Class Presentationsof selected projects are on April 20 and 23.

The semester group project is due by email in PDF format by Midnight May 6.

Exams.

There are twomidterm exams, February 23 and April 6, 7:30am to 9:25am in JFB-B1.

The comprehensivefinal examis on Monday April 30 from 7:30am to 10:00am in JFB-B1.

Exam study material includes a sample exam.

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.
