Linear Algebra and its Applications (Fourth Edition) by David C. Lay
This is a ﬁrst course in linear algebra which emphasizes the applied and numerical aspects of the subject. Some of the topics we will cover are linear equations, matrices,
determinants, linear transformations, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, inner products, and numerical methods.
Homework problems will be assigned but not collected. However, some exam problems
will be similar to the homework problems, so of course you should do the recommended
Several computer projects based on the MATLAB package will be assigned during the
semester. Knowledge of a scientiﬁc programming language is a prerequisite
for MAS 3114—I will not be teaching you how to program in this course.

December 16, 12:30–2:30 PM (ﬁnal) Grading
Each in-class exam is worth 20% of your ﬁnal grade, the ﬁnal is worth 40%, and the
computer projects are worth a total of 20%. I will drop your lowest in-class exam score
(or half of your ﬁnal exam) to make the total add up to 100%. ...
