MA371 (Version: 2013 1) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
MA371 LINEAR ALGEBRA 2013 1 Mathematical Sciences 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=3.0)
SCOPE
This course emphasizes both the computational and theoretical aspects of linear algebra one encounters in many subjects ranging from economics to engineering. The course covers solutions of linear systems of equations and the algebra of matrices. The foundational aspects of vector spaces and linear transformations to include linear dependence and independence, subspaces, bases and dimension, inner products, and orthonormalization are developed. This is rounded out with a detailed investigation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors as they relate to diagonalization, quadratic equations, and systems of differential equations. The Invertible Matrix Theorem is explored as the conceptual/theoretical thread of the course. A computer algebra system is used to explore concepts and compute solutions to problems. Applications of the course material are included in the form of special problems to illustrate its wide scope.
LESSONS: 40 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Several special problems.

COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
MA371 LINEAR ALGEBRA 1980 1 Mathematical Sciences 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course emphasizes both the computational and theoretical aspects of linear algebra one encounters in many subjects ranging from economics to engineering. The course covers solutions of linear systems of equations, the algebra of matrices, and the utility of determinants. The foundational aspects of vector spaces and linear transformations to include linear dependence and independence, subspaces, bases and dimension, inner products, and orthonormalization are developed. This is rounded out with a detailed investigation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors as they relate to diagonalization, quadratic equations, and systems of differential equations. A software package is used to compute solutions to problems. Applications of the course material are included in the form of special problems to illustrate its wide scope.
