Linear Algebra and its applications by David C. Lay (fourth edition)
Prerequisites
MATH 2300 or APPM 1360. Credit not granted for this course and APPM 3310.
Course Contents
Basic properties of systems of linear equations, matrices and matrix algebra, determinants, vector spaces, subspaces, linear independence of vectors, basis and dimension of subspaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix, orthogonality of vectors, inner product and length of vectors.
Grading
Your grade will be computed from:
Students will obtain the full 5% for class conduct by default. Points may be deducted for repeatedly being late, repeatedly leaving early, sleeping or excessive yawning in class, very poor class attendance, or obnoxious behavior.
When determining your letter grade, I will take into account (a) your attendance in class (b) the number of homework assignments you completed and (c) improvement during the course.
Tests
The two midterms will be held during class on Tuesday, June 10 and Thursday, June 19, 2014.
The first midterm might be something like this.
The second midterm might be something like this.
The final might be something like this.
The final examination is on Thursday, July 3, 2014 in the usual classroom at the usual class time. Bring your CU student ID to all of your tests.
Homework
Homework is due at the beginning of class. Some, but not all of the problems will be graded. Justify all your answers.
Students With Disabilities
If you qualify for accommodations because of a disability, please submit to me a letter from Disability Services in a timely manner so that your needs can be addressed. Disability Services determines accommodations based on documented disabilities. Contact: 303-492-8671, Center for Community N200, and http://www.colorado.edu/disabilityservices.
If you have a temporary medical condition or injury, see guidelines at http://disabilityservices.colorado.edu/quick-links/temporary-injuries
Disability Services' letters for students with disabilities indicate legally mandated reasonable accommodations. The syllabus statements and answers to Frequently Asked Questions can be found at http://www.colorado.edu/disabilityservices
Missed Exams
If you know that you are going to miss an exam or cannot take the final exam at the scheduled time, please notify your instructor immediately. If you miss a midterm exam for any acceptable reason (e.g. religious obligation, documented illness), that midterm exam score will be replaced by your other midterm exam score. If you miss both midterm exams for acceptable reasons, each midterm score will be replaced by your final exam score. If you miss the final exam (unless it is for an acceptable reason), you will score zero on the final and you should expect to fail the course.
Religious Obligations
Campus policy regarding religious observances requires that faculty make every effort to deal reasonably and fairly with all students who, because of religious obligations, have conflicts with scheduled exams, assignments or required attendance. In this class, you should notify your instructor of any conflict immediately. See full details at http://www.colorado.edu/policies/fac_relig.html
Student Classroom and Course-Related Behavior
Students and faculty each have responsibility for maintaining an appropriate learning environment. Those who fail to adhere to such behavioral standards may be subject to discipline. Professional courtesy and sensitivity are especially important with respect to individuals and topics dealing with differences of race, color, culture, religion, creed, politics, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and gender expression, age, disability, and nationalities. Class rosters are provided to the instructor with the student's legal name. I will gladly honor your request to address you by an alternate name or gender pronoun. Please advise me of this preference early in the semester so that I may make appropriate changes to my records. Please, no open yawning or sleeping in class. If you are having a problem with some aspect of the course, you should discuss it with me in a civil manner. Outbursts directed at the instructor or grader for this course will not be tolerated. See policies at http://www.colorado.edu/policies/classbehavior.html and at http://www.colorado.edu/studentaffairs/judicialaffairs/code.html#student_code
Honor Code
All students of the University of Colorado at Boulder are responsible for knowing and adhering to the academic integrity policy of this institution. Violations of this policy may include: cheating, plagiarism, aid of academic dishonesty, fabrication, lying, bribery, and threatening behavior. All incidents of academic misconduct shall be reported to the Honor Code Council (honor [AT] colorado.edu; 303-735-2273). Students who are found to be in violation of the academic integrity policy will be subject to both academic sanctions from the faculty member and non-academic sanctions (including but not limited to university probation, suspension, or expulsion). Other information on the Honor Code can be found at http://www.colorado.edu/policies/honor.html
Statement on Discrimination and Harassment
The University of Colorado at Boulder Discrimination and Harassment Policy and Procedures, the University of Colorado Sexual Harassment Policy and Procedures, and the University of Colorado Conflict of Interest in Cases of Amorous Relationships policy apply to all students, staff, and faculty. Any student, staff, or faculty member who believes s/he has been the subject of sexual harassment or discrimination or harassment based upon race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status should contact the Office of Discrimination and Harassment (ODH) at 303-492-2127 or the Office of Student Conduct (OSC) at 303-492-5550.
