Linear algebra is one of the fundamental subjects of mathematics I sometimes feel that a solid grasp of linear algebra will get you more than halfway to understanding many (most?) mathematics colloquiumstyle talks. We will discuss vector spaces, linear dependence and independence, linear transformations, matrices, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvec tors, and inner products. There is an additional purpose to the class besides learning linear al gebra, however. This is the class in which you make the transition from computational mathematics (such as most of calculus) to abstract math ematics. It is also the class in which you learn to write proofs. There is no way to accomplish these goals but by working with abstract concepts and engaging in proofwriting, so that we will do....
