Course Description: This course and MATH 2222 3.0  together provide a standard full-year introduction to linear algebra. While our focus will not be excessively theoretical, students will be introduced to proofs and expected to develop skills in understanding and applying concepts as well as results. Applications will be left mainly for MATH 2222 3.0.

The homework problems are given but solutions will not be collected for grading.


It is extremely important that students complete these Homework Problems. Since mathematics is a subject where mastery of previous material is essential in order to understand current topics, successful students must keep up to date in the course and seek help for points they do not understand as soon as possible.

Problems on the midterm tests and final examination will be typical to the homework problems and solving them is an important part of preparing for these tests.

Math Lab

Help with problem solving is available in the Math Lab, Room S525 Ross. This service will begin the second week of classes.

Exam Information

MIDTERMS: These are three 45 minute written midterm tests, each worth 20% of the final grade, held in the lecture period on Wednesday, October 2, on Wednesday October 30 and on Wednesday, November 20.
FINAL EXAMINATION: This will be a 3-hour test worth 40% of the final grade scheduled by the Registrar.
An alternative to the normal grading scheme is to have the final examination worth 60% of the grade and the term work worth 40%. Students will be evaluated under whichever scheme maximizes their grade.

Note: All tests and exam will be strictly closed book. Any form of academic misconduct will be handled in accordance with the Senate Policy on Academic Honesty. Photo identification, and signing-in is required at all tests and examination.
There are no make up tests.
  Missed tests will be counted as  zero, except under extreme circumstances. If an acceptable reason, with appropriate documentation, is given for having missed a test, the final exam will be used for the missing grade. Students who are absent by virtue of illness for a final examination must apply formally for a deferred exam through the Registrar's Office.

Calculator Policy

While calculators will not be required or needed for this course, the use of single-line-display hand-held calculators is allowed on the exam and tests. Note that a calculator with graphing and programming capabilities is not needed in this course, and in fact is NOT permitted on the exam and tests.


Religious Observance

York University is committed to respecting the religious beliefs and practices of all members of the community and making accommodations for observances of special significance to adherents. If any of the dates specified in the course schedule for in-class tests pose such a conflict, students should contact me within the first two weeks of lectures. Please note if the final examination date poses a conflict, students must complete an Examination Accommodation Form, which can be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Communication 

The course web page will be up-dated regularly to include important announcements made in class, such as the material to be covered on the tests. E-mail notes requesting such information contained on the web page will not be answered. Individual questions can be discussed by e-mail or in person after class or during office hours.


Links and Other Resources

Here are a few examples of resources for linear algebra available on the web. 

1-   Links to Linear Algebra sites

2-   Massachusetts Institute of Technology  Linear Algebra lecture videos by renowned Professor G.Strang, Fall 1999. Quite a bit advanced for MATH 2221.
