Text: Linear Algebra with Applications, Steven Leon, 8th edition
Please
note the following guidelines for the course:
Description: Systems of linear equations, matrices, linear
transformations, determinants, eigenvalues and
eigenvectors. Efficient computational methods emphasized.
Prerequisite: (163 or 181) and CS 151L
Grades:
The
final grade will be determined by homework & quizzes (100 points), two
midterms (100 points each) and a final exam (200 points). All grades will be posted on WebCT.
Homework:
Homework is due every Monday at the beginning of class. There will be one HW
weekly or a quiz. Additional MATLAB projects will be added to the below list of
homework problems. You can work together on the homework, but you do need to
write up your own solutions in your own words. To help the grader, please write
your solutions up neatly and clearly (no points for work that the reader
cannot follow this is also true for exams), and staple the sheets.
The best twelve homework/quiz grades only will be counted for a possible
maximum total scaled to 100pts. Please do not turn in late homework.
Missed
Exams: Makeup exams can be
arranged for exams missed with a VALID excuse (illness, family emergency,
active participation in scholarly or athletic activities), and ONLY if prior
notice is given.
Disability

We will accommodate students with documented disabilities. During the first two
weeks of the semester, those students should inform the instructor of their
particular needs and they should also contact Accessibility Services in Mesa
Vista Hall, Room 2021, phone 2773506. In addition, they should see CATS
