Mathematics 568
3 cr.
Introductory Linear Algebra I
Au, Wi, Sp, Su (1st Term)
Prerequisite:
Mathematics 254.
Not open to students with credit for 571.
Catalog Description:
The ndimensional Euclidean space and its subspaces; matrices as mappings; matrix algebra; systems
of equations; determinants; dot product; geometric interpretations.
Purpose of Course:
Math 568 is a concrete introduction to linear algebra for (mathematically unsophisticated) students
who
have
completed
a
fourquarter
Calculus
sequence,
and
serves
as
their
introduction
to
Mathematics as a deductive discipline. This being the case, proofs that are computational in nature,
that provide a computation, procedure or algorithm that can be readily employed by such students,
are strongly preferred. However, the text does have many True/False problems requiring brief
(justification)/(counterexample), as well as concrete problems requiring an understanding of the
machinery and results that have been developed.
Such problems should be included regularly in
