This IOP (pdf), must be carefully typed, but diagrams may be hand-drawn.
At all times have a paper copy you can hand-in; I do
NOT accept
electronic versions.
Print out a copy each day, so that you always have the latest version to
hand-in; this, in case your printer or computer fails.

On Tuesday, 05Apr2016 we relaxed to the music of Class-E, the last in-class exam of the semester.
Eager students rushed to post solns, especially to the more interesting conundra, such as (C1b).
We had the pleasant Class-B, (a mini-test of prerequisite knowledge) on Friday, 08Jan2016.
The mini-test counted for little, about
2%—4% of course grade, and selects some topics from:
:: High-school knowledge
(formula for a line between two points, the Quadratic Formula,
intersecting a line with a parabola, etc.), and some
:: Sets&Logic ideas
(Equivalence relations, partial orders, binary operators,
induction, pigeon-hole principle, cardinality, powerset operator, etc.)
:: Mathematical maturity
(Do you remember your basic calculus stuff? Do you remember how
to sum a geometric series?)
The :: Math-Greek alphabet (pdf),
which we will use in class frequently.
Available was a practice prereq.
This demo page illustrates these linear transformations: Dilations, Rotations and Shears. It also shows the affine transformation of Translation.
Please peruse the Wikipedia pages that define Group, Ring, Field as well as Set builder notation.
Our LinA class has a LISTSERV archive. I will email to each student how to post-to and read-from the Archive. (The archive is at a private URL, only for the use of the folks in our class.)

In all of my courses, attendance is absolutely required (excepting illness and religious holidays). In the unfortunate event that you miss a class, you are responsible to get all Notes / Announcements / TheWholeNineYards from a classmate, or several. All my classes have a substantial class-participation grade.
