A brief introduction to matrix algebra, linear algebra, and applications. Topics include systems
of linear equations, matrix algebra, determinants, the real vector spaces and their subspaces, bases,
co-ordinates, orthogonalization, linear transformations, eigenvectors and diagonalization of symmetric
matrices. We will ﬁnish by covering some applications.
Your grade will be determined by your performance in the following areas:
1. Tests (45%) There will be three in-class tests in weeks number 5, 8 and 11 each accounting for
15% of your ﬁnal grade.
Test 1 Feb. 4 (Monday) 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Test 2 Mar. 4 (Monday) 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Test 3 Mar. 25 (Monday) 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
2. Final Exam (55%) The Final exam will be held in April exam period and will be worth 55% of
your ﬁnal grade. The Final Exam will cover all material from this term with an increased emphasis on
