We have an additional grader now: Ms. E. Kim.

I will post homework solutions on the web at end of class. For this reason, no late homework will be accepted.

**Syllabus:**

We will cover almost all of the first six chapters of the text:
Leon, Linear Algebra.

We are going to skip the following portions of Chapter 5 in order
to allow us to devote sufficient time to Chapter 6.

If there is time in last week of course, we will return to this.

pp. 206-212; section 5.3; pp. 237-239; pp. 247-257; pp. 267-268; section 5.7.

**
Homework:**
** Current Assignment**

Read sections 6.1, 6.3, 6.4, 6.6.

(Last) homework, due Thursday, July 28

page 258, 15 and 18; page 294, 2 and 26.

Exam III will be Monday, August 1.

It will cover the portions done in class of the following
sections:

5.1, 5.2, 5.4, 5.5, 6.1, 6.3.

**Final Exam**: Friday August 5: 1:00--3:00 in AH 314 (not AH
341).
The final exam will have 8 problems.

About 10 homeworks, each 10 points = 100 points;

3 hour exams = 300 points:

Final Exam = 200 points

Your course average is computed by: Average = (total points)/600.

If one does very well on the final, then one's
course grade can go up;

but if the final is
terrible, the course grade can go down.

A | A- | B+ | B | B- | C+ | C | C- | D | F |

90 | 87 | 83 | 79 | 75 | 70 | 65 | 60 | 50 |

For example, if your average is 83, 84, 85, or 86, your grade is B+.
