Answers to your questions 03/01/10: Administrative questions 1. On the final, are we going to have to find the rank/inverse for some huge matrix? For inverse, the largest one will be 3x3. For rank, the largest one will be 3xn. For determinant, the largest will be 4x4. 2. A lot of the math classes I took had a “second grading system”, where if we get an A on the final, we get an A in the class, regardless of previous quizzes/hw/midterms. So you support this policy as well? That depends on the average grade of the class. If it is too low, I will follow this policy. 3. On the lecture notes of section 3.3&3.4, I like how to typed out the definitions and theorems. It looks neat. Thanks for the comment. I actually found them on some website, then cut and paste. 4. Is the class curved? No. Only the extra credits on questions will be curved. Questions for today’s lecture 5. gG ± + G ² = 1 , m<n is a consistent system. gG ± + G ² + G ³ = 1 , m<n is a consistent system. ´ G ± + G ² + G ³ = 1 G ± + G ² + G ³ = 2 , m<n is an inconsistent system since it doesn’t have a solution. 6. Is rank basically the same as number of “pivot elements”? Yes. You can think of it as the number of nonzero pivot elements. 7.
