Discussion classes: Section 1001: F 10:00am-11:15am in CBC-C129 – GA: Yuri Sapolich Prerequisite: Math 182 and CS 117 or CS 135. Text: Essential Introduction to Linear Algebra (Fifth edition), by Lee W. Johnson, R. Dean Riess , Jimmy T. Arnold . Material Covered: Chapters 1-5. Homework: Will be assigned weekly and is strongly recommended (not for credit). Tests: There will be 2 tests and a cumulative final exam. Projects: There will be Matlab projects assigned for each chapter and collected for credit. You will turn in the projects in the webcampus system. Grading: 25% matlab projects, 20% each test, 35% final exam. A: 90%-100% B: 80%-89% C: 70%-79% D: 60%-69% F: 0%-59% Note: If you miss a test you must present me with some certification before the test; otherwise, your test grade will be zero. Course Description: This is a course of computational linear algebra. It is designed to introduce students to the matrix theory and systems of linear equations, elementary vector-space concepts, subspaces, linear independence, bases, linear transformations, matrix representation for linear transformations, change of basis and the eigenvalue problem. Techniques from linear algebra that can be applied to drawing curves that fit experimental/empirical data will be presented. We will also comment on aspects of solving linear algebra problems in a computer environment throughout the semester. Important: Academic Misconduct – Academic integrity is a legitimate concern for every member of the campus

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
