*) Weekly quizzes are done electronically using WileyPLUS. You must have a WileyPLUS account to complete them. Quizzes are available on Wednesday after the class until Sunday 9:00 P.M. EST each week (please note that deadline is electronically enforced). Only top ten quiz marks will be included in your course grade. Quiz 1 is a practice run, and does not count towards your evaluation.
Course Description: Topics
include systems of linear equations, general matrix algebra, determinants,
vector space concepts for Euclidean nspace (e.g., linear dependence and
independence, basis, dimension, linear transformations, etc.), and an
introduction to eigenvalues and eigenvectors. The course gives a oneterm intensive introduction to linear
algebra, with emphasis on its applications. It is particularly appropriate for
students taking Science or Engineering programs which require one term’s worth
of linear algebra. For more detailed list of topics with references to the
textbook, please see Course Schedule.

Note: The course will not cover all the sections of each chapter from the textbook.
All distractive electronic devices (cell phones, iphones, ipods, ipads and pagers, head phones, digital
dictionaries, CD players, laptops) need to be turned off during class, i.e.
during lectures, tutorials, tests and exams. All such devices as well as all
books, papers, knapsacks, and briefcases must be left at the front of a lecture
hall during tests. Anyone caught with internet connected devices will be
charged with Academic Dishonesty (see the next page). The only items you may
have at your seat during exams and tests are pens, pencils, eraser, student ID
and purses. Notes need to be taken manually; use of cellphone cameras in class
is not allowed. You are responsible for all material covered in lectures.
Note: Photo identification and signingin are required at all
tests
The official grades at York University are LETTER
grades. Qualitative descriptions of these grades can be found
in the York Calendar at this link. Your test marks will be on a numerical
scale because these have to be weighted and averaged in various ways, but THERE IS NO AUTOMATIC
PREDETERMINED CORRELATIONS BETWEEN NUMERICAL GRADES AND LETTER GRADES in this course. In particular, the
"numerical" grades you
receive are NOT to be interpreted as percentages; they are merely 'raw scores'. When the tests are returned in class, the distribution of 'raw scores' will
be announced along with an approximate
conversion to letter grades. The median
letter grade for the course will
likely fall between C and C+.
The composition of the final grade is as
follows:
Weekly quizzes: 20% of your
overall grade for the course. Quizzes are done electronically using WileyPLUS. You must have a WIleyPLUS
account to complete them. Quizzes are available on Wednesday after the class
until Sunday 9:00 P.M. EST each week (please note that the deadline is
electronically enforced). Only top ten quiz marks will be included in your
course grade. Quiz 1 is a practice run, and does not count towards your
evaluation;
Three Tests (120 minutes each written tests held in lecture periods):
30%+30%+20% of your overall grade for the course. Tentative dates for the tests
are Wednesdays, June 05, July 03 and July 31, 2013.
Note: Students have five days from
the date of the return of test papers to appeal their marks. Some test papers
(randomly selected) are photocopied before they are handed back, so we can
detect subsequent alterations.
Makeup Policy:
No permission will be given to a
student to write tests in advance of their scheduled dates. No makeup will be
done for the tests. A missed test will be counted as zero, except under extreme
circumstances in which case the corresponding percentage of the overall grade
will be "forwarded" to the next test. At least two tests need to be
written to pass this course. In exceptional situations where a student misses
more than one test, the grade will be considered on an individual basis. If you
miss a test for medical reasons you must turn in within one week following
the test date the Attending Physician's Statement Form provided here
after getting it filled in by your doctor. No other type of medical note
will be accepted. However, missing tests is extremely dangerous and not
recommended. As experience has shown, students who miss class tests because
of some 'mysterious illnesses' will usually average 50% on the following test.
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 inclass tests pose
such a conflict, students should contact me (raguimov@mathstat.yorku.ca)
within the first two weeks of classes.
Academic Honesty:
Students are responsible for
familiarizing themselves with University Policies and Regulations. Conduct that
violates the ethical or legal standards of the university community or of one’s
programme or specialization may result in serious consequences. Refer to the
Senate Policy on Academic
Honesty.
Individual questions can be discussed by email or
in person after class, or during office hours. Please send all email notes as
plain text within the body of the message. Do not send attachments or
HTMLformatted mail. Also, if the name of your account is an alias, I will not
know who the mail is from unless you sign it; it also risks being accidentally
discarded as junk mail. 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 be answered the last.
