*) 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 n-space (e.g., linear dependence and independence, basis, dimension, linear transformations, etc.), and an introduction to eigenvalues and eigenvectors. The course gives a one-term 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.

Homework:

There will be weekly quizzes 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.
Throughout the term, practice exercises will be posted to the Announcements section. In order to develop your understanding of the course material you must do all assigned problems. These will not be collected for grading and hence will not directly affect your grade. However, it is extremely important that you complete all assigned exercises. Do not memorize them. Rather, learn how to solve problems like them. Learning Mathematics is not a spectacular sport, it is a participatory event. There is nothing like a bit of computation to strengthen understanding in mathematics! Use the Solutions Manual only after you have tried the problem. Successful students must keep up with homework and seek help for points they do not understand as soon as possible. Do not fall behind! It is recommended to read the relevant sections of the textbook before every class. Next to the classes, working out the answers to the problems is the most important preparation for the tests and exam that will contain for the most part but not exclusively, questions very similar to those from the textbook. It is quite practical to work on your own or together in small groups. Each student should do at least two hours of independent study for every lecture hour. The amount you learn in this course and the grade you receive will be proportional to the amount of time you spend working on problems.


Exams Information:

Lecture/Exam Rules:

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 signing-in are required at all tests

Final Grade:

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.

Make-up Policy:

No permission will be given to a student to write tests in advance of their scheduled dates. No make-up 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 in-class 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.

Communication:

Individual questions can be discussed by e-mail or in person after class, or during office hours. Please send all e-mail notes as plain text within the body of the message. Do not send attachments or HTML-formatted 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 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 be answered the last.
