Course Description

Linear algebra is a source of many important ideas and techniques with broad applications in mathematics, science, and engineering. Students explore some of the main concepts and techniques in linear algebra as they learn about vectors, matrices, linear equations, and their applications. In addition, the course has a theoretical focus and students are expected to complete various types of proofs. The topics include systems of linear equations, Gaussian elimination, operations on matrices, determinants, Euclidean and abstract vector spaces, linear independence of vectors, vector subspaces, the concepts of basis and dimension, linear transformations, change of basis, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization, and orthogonal diagonalization.

Students will receive credit for only one of MATH 2362 or 1252.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in one of the following: MATH 1271, 1273, 1274, or 1275; or a minimum "A" grade in MATH 1171, 1173, or 1253 and concurrent registration in one of the following: MATH 1271, 1273, 1274, or 1275. Prerequisites are valid for only three years.
