Method1: Final 40%, 2 midterms 20% each, matlab 10%, homework 10% (we will drop your worst homework score).

Method2: Final 60%, best of 2 midterms: 20%, matlab 10%, homework 10% (we will drop your worst homework score).

** Dates of exams/deadlines: **

Final: June 10, 3:00-5:59pm

Midterms: Friday, April 22 and Wednesday, May 18

Homework: For assignments and deadlines, see homework

Matlab: See matlab problems

** Course material:** We will use
the book `Linear Algebra with Applications', 3rd edition, by David C. Lay.
For a tentative syllabus for the course click below.

This course will also include MATLAB problems. You can find the MATLAB assignments at

**Midterm I:** The first midterm will take place

**in class ** for students in Sections ** B04-B08**, i.e. for students whose
TAs are Nicholas Nguyen or Jorge Gonzalez,

**in Lecture hall Center 105** for students in Sections ** B01-B03**,
i.e. for students whose TA is M. Brandon Meredith.

Please make sure that you end up in the right lecture hall! The material for the midterm will go until Section 2.3 (only sections from which homework problems were assigned). The problems will be similar to problems in the homework. Below is a practice exam

Other problems could be questions related to invertibility of a matrix, or to using linearity of matrix multiplication. You are allowed to use one hand-written cheat sheet (material can be written on both sides), but no calculator, books or other notes. I will say a little more about the exam in class, and I may add a few more things at this page closer to the exam.

**Midterm II:** The second midterm will take place

**in class ** for students in Sections ** B01-B03** and
Sections ** B07,B08**, i.e. for students whose
TAs are Brandon Meredith or Jorge Gonzalez,

**in Lecture hall CSB 002** for students in Sections ** B04-B06**,
i.e. for students whose TA is Nicholas Nguyen.

Please make sure that you end up in the right lecture hall! The material for the midterm will be Chapters 3, 4 (only sections from which homework problems were assigned) and Chapter 5.1. The problems will be similar to problems in the homework. As we now have more advanced material, the problems may be a little harder than for the first midterm. Below is a practice exam. I may put up solutions later. The fact that I put up such a practice exam does not mean that all the problems in the midterm will be of the same type. Other types of problems: Calculate eigenspaces (Chapter 5.1), problems involving rank, nullspaces etc, or determinants.
