Course Description: This course and MATH 2222 3.0 together provide a standard fullyear 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.
Help with problem solving is available in the Math Lab, Room S525 Ross. This
service will begin the second week of classes.

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 3hour 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 signingin 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.
While calculators will not be required or needed for this course, the use of singlelinedisplay handheld 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.
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 inclass 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.
The course web page will be updated regularly to include important announcements made in class, such as the material to be covered on the tests. Email notes requesting such information contained on the web page will not be answered. Individual questions can be discussed by email or in person after class or during office hours.

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