Welcome! Our Teaching Page has useful information for students in all of my classes. It has my schedule, LOR guidelines, and Usually Useful Pamphlets. One of them is the ChecklistThe checklist (pdf) which gives pointers on what I consider to be good mathematical writing. Further information is at our class-archive URL (I email this private URL directly to students).

Voila the final project (pdf). It was due, slid u n d e r room 402 Little Hall my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) ,

2pm, Friday 7Dec2007 (Pearl Harbor Day)

The final project must be carefully typed.

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. (You are too old for My dog ate my homework.)

Please follow the guidelines on the Checklist Checklist (pdf, 3pages) to earn full credit.

General Info

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.

Our textbook is Linear Algebra and Its Applications (Third Edition Update).
(Note the word Update on the cover.)
Author: David Lay ISBN: 0-321-28713-4
Year: 2006 Publisher: Addison-Wesley
Here are links to this book at The Publisher's site and at and new/used.
We may also make use of an online text:
Computational and Algorithmic Linear Algebra and n-Dimensional Geometry by Katta G. Murty.

On the first day of class I will hand-out a paper syllabus, which has the instructions on how to use the class archive. The archive is at a private URL, only for the use of the students in the class.

Please avoid looking at Past courses with notes, exams and links, which has past versions of all my courses,

Also available are parts of CLA pages from 2002, 1998 and Spring 2007:

One of our tools is the textbook Linear Algebra with Applications (2nd edition), Author: David Lay.

We will cover most of chapters 1-6, as well as some material that I'll introduce.

Quizzes & Exams

Quizzes are available: Q0 (pdf). Q1 (pdf). Q2 (txt). Q3 (txt). Q4 (pdf). (Q5 was the freebie subscribe-to-ML quiz.)

Exams: A-class (pdf) and B-class (pdf) and the final exam, C-class (pdf).


Our syllabus (pdf) has a course outline.

Study B (text) Exam B: (pdf) 15Mar1998: Some answers
Study C (text) Exam C: (pdf) 21Apr1998: Answers to C1(a) (text) Answers to C1(b) & C2 (text) Answers to C1(cde) (text).

Project Sum, had you write Maple or Matlab code to take as input, a natural number K. Your program used rref to compute the polynomial PK(n), which is the sum of the Kth powers of the first n integers.

Project Interpolate (pdf) has you use rref to compute a minimum degree polynomial passing through specified points.

Project First-Order Estimate (pdf) has you use Cramer's theorem to estimate the errors in a column vector x. It is the solution to a matrix eqn. Ax=b, but there is some uncertainty in some of the entries of A.
