About this Course

The goals of this course are as follows.

Linear algebra is an essential part of the mathematics, science and engineering disciplines. The material in this course will be very important in your future studies.

Course Structure

This course meets four times a week for lectures, where the basic concepts will be introduced. There is also one conference section per week. In these sessions you will work in small groups, aided by Peer Learning Assistants. The PLAs are there to facilitate your learning; they are not there to do the homework problems for you.
