Lay __Linear Algebra and its Applications__ Third Edition

**Course Description**

Linear algebra is one of the most important parts of modern mathematics. In addition, its applications continue to spread more and more fields. The purpose of this course is to present the principal topics of linear algebra and to illustrate the power of this subject through a variety of applications.

This course is a transitional course, in which a mathematical argument and the construction of the proof are introduced. However, the focus is on student mastery of the techniques of linear algebra.

**Grading Policies:**

**Homework:**
Homework exercises will be assigned in most classes, and you should complete the assignment before the next class period. *Collaboration on homework is allowed and encouraged.* A set of the homework exercises will be handed in for grading at the end of each week. Late homework will not be accepted except in extenuating circumstances.

**Exams:**
There will be three midterm exams and a final exam. The midterm exams are scheduled for 2/15, 3/12, and 4/16. **If you have a conflict with any of the exam days, you should let me know immediately.** Our final exam is scheduled for May 14 at 12:30 pm. Exception will be made for illness if a note from the health center (or attending physician) is provided.

**Collaboration:**
You are *encouraged* to collaborate on solving the problems given as homework. However, the solutions should be written on your own and in your own words. *Clearly, there is no collaboration on exams*.

**Blackboard and Electronic Submission of Assignments:**
Our course webpage will be on Blackboard http://blackboard.uidaho.edu.

*If you have a documented need for accommodations such as extra time on exams, you should discuss this with me as soon as possible so that we can make the necessary arrangements. *

**Point Distribution:**

- Homework - 100 points
- Midterm Exams - 3 at 100 points each
