MAT 224◊ Linear Algebra

3 credits

A first course in vectors, matrices, vector spaces and linear transformations. Serves not only as an introduction to more abstract mathematics courses at the junior-senior level, but also have many useful applications outside mathematics. May be taken concurrently with, but should not replace, a course in multivariable calculus. Topics include vectors, vector spaces, matrices, determinants, matrix algebra, linear independence, linear transformations eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and applications of these topics. Approximately one-third of the course will involve the concept of mathematical proof as applied to linear algebra.

Prerequisite: MAT 133◊ (with a grade of "C" or better)

Lecture: 3 hours — IAI: MTH 911
