## Linear Algebra

This is the homepage for the Summer 2010 Linear Algebra group contract.  In the first session, we’ll meet for this subject on Mondays at 3pm and on Wednesdays at 1pm.  In the second session, we’ll schedule each meeting separately.

Textbook: We’re using the text Linear Algebra, 2nd edition, by Hoffman and Kunze.  In the first 5 weeks (4 credits), we’ll work through the first 5 or 6 (hopefully 6) chapters; in the second 5 weeks (4 more credits), we’ll work through the rest of the book.  We should get through about a chapter a week, but move more quickly through the first two chapters because much of the material is either review or fairly easy.

Homework: we’ll use the turn-in system, so each time we meet you’ll submit one problem for grading.  You’ll maintain a portfolio of your work on the problems you don’t hand in; I’ll review your completed portfolio at the end when I write your evaluation.  Homework assignments appear below.

Exams: We’ll have one take-home exam for each 4 credits, to be handed out in weeks 5 and 10.
