MTH 2775: Linear Algebra
Managing the class
The course will be managed via Google classroom.
The class code will be sent to everyone by email 3-4 days before the semester starts.
Make sure to use your Oakland email to log in. All the course materials will be uploaded there, including tests, homework, etc.
There will be live online lectures which will NOT be recorded. All lectures will be during the official time for the course. Attendance is mandatory.
Study of general vector spaces, linear systems of equations, linear transformations and compositions, Eigenvalues, eigenvectors, diagonalization, modeling and orthogonality. Provides a transition to formal mathematics.
No textbook is required. For those of you who must have a book we suggest the following:
- Linear Algebra, T. Shaska.
- Linear Algebra with Applications , Otto Bretscher, 5-th edition.
MATLAB - MathWorks
will be used throughout the course to illustrate the theory. Students are encouraged to install and learn Matlab. The Department of Mathematics has a Matlab license and you can buy it for $99.
A working environment which includes a desk and a computer
A computer with a camera. You will have to turn the camera on during the exams
A scanner so you can scan the exams or a digital pen. You will be asked to upload the exams and
homework in Google classroom in a single pdf file. There will be no time to run around. Your exams will
