Announcements for Section N59

August 15 - Exam 3 and its key are now in Resources (link below).

August 11 - The final touch has been put on the assignment sheet. For the solutions to the problems added to the end of section 6.6 of the Notes, which have been assigned, see the link to the Answer Book in the Notes section of the website (it's below the Symbol Glossary). Alternatively look in Resources (link below) under Homework Solutions. Or hey, just go here.

August 10 - The assignment sheet is nearly done. Exam 3, I've decided, will cover sections 5.1, 5.2, 6.1, 6.2, 7.1, and 7.2. That's plenty to do, and ends the course at about the same place it ended in previous terms. More homework for section 7.2 will likely be added soon.

August 5 - The assignment sheet has been updated, and it will be updated again later tonight (around 10:00 PM).

July 31 - Exam 2 will happen on August 6 instead of August 4. I've added additional examples to Sections 3.2 and 3.6 of the Notes.

July 30 - The assignment sheet has been updated. Again, we will be convening in Penn Hall 230 for the foreseeable future.

July 29 - The Notes (link below) are now compiled into one book with a clickable table of contents, titled Linear Algebra. One thing though: not all the cross-referencing has been brought up to date, so some references to theorems and such will be wrong or missing. That'll get fixed in the days to come.

July 28 - The syllabus has been updated to reflect the sections I foresee will be covered by the next two exams. Exam 1 and its key are in the Resources section of the site now. Exam scores will be sent out by BCCC e-mail late tonight. Note: since Founders Hall has become a general disaster area we are meeting in Penn Hall room 230 for the time being. Keep checking the assignment sheet for additional updates.

July 27 - The assignment sheet has been updated again.

July 21 - The assignment sheet has been updated.

July 16 - I fixed a few minor typos in Chapter 3 of the Notes, and changed a lot of vectors from a horizontal to a vertical format (so they are column vectors).

June 11 - This is just a six-week course, and very intensive. There is no accommodation to be made for anyone who plans on taking a vacation in the middle of it. I cannot have the last exam on August 13 made up early for anyone who wants to miss the last day (or last week), since the final decision concerning what problems will be on the last exam cannot be made until after the last full day of lecture (August 11) is over and done. So be sure you can give this course your full commitment unto the uttermost end!

June 10 - Note: the link to the syllabus is not yet operational.

March 6 - The book to be used for this course (see above) has a solutions manual offered for free by the publisher. The assignments (see below) are still under construction.
