Summer 2003 Math 250:B1 Introductory Linear Algebra

Announcements:
(Jul. 6) I have finished grading the final exam. The average was 150 out of 200 points. I will be emailing everyone their final exam grades and their course grade tonight. If anyone wants to see their final exam or discuss their grade, I would be happy to do so. I will no longer be holding office hourse, so please email me to set up an appointment.
I enjoyed teaching the course, and I hope that everyone enjoyed it and learned a lot of linear algebra. Thanks for your hard work, and enjoy the rest of the summer!

(Jul. 1) Here are the solutions to Quiz #12.

(Jun. 30) Here are the solutions to Quiz #11.

(Jun. 29) The final exam is Thursday, July 3 from 10:15am to 1:15pm. It will be in Murray Hall Room 208. The final exam will be cumulative, covering all the material of the course but with a slight emphasis on the material from chapter 6.
We will spend Wednesday's class finishing material and then reviewing for the final.
Here is the formula sheet for the final exam. I will bring copies of it to the final. If you feel that something should be added, email me the exact text you want included, and I will consider it. The way the formula sheet appears by class on Wednesday will be its final form.
Four-function or scientific calculators may be used during the midterms and final, but graphing calculators and any other calculator with linear algebra capabilities may not be used.

(Jun. 29) Here are the solutions to Quiz #10.

(Jun. 26) Here are the solutions to the second midterm. I strongly suggest that people review the problems that they missed.
Today, June 26, is the last day to withdraw from the class.

(Jun. 20) Here are more additions to the formula sheet for the second midterm. There's not much space left on the page, so we'll have to do some clever cramming if someone requests additional items.

(Jun. 4) Here are some actual midterms, practice midterms, and solutions from this past academic year. In these courses, the same book was used that we are using, but individual professors may have placed different emphasis on the material than I have. This will be taken into account when I create the first midterm.

(Jun. 3) As was pointed out in class, the dates for the midterm are incorrect on the syllabus. The first midterm will be on Tuesday, June 10, and the second midterm will be on Tuesday, June 24. I will post some practice exams shortly for you to review. I will also be giving you a "formula sheet" that will state many of the important concepts and theorems. Four-function or scientific calculators may be used during the midterms and final, but graphing calculators and any other calculator with linear algebra capabilities may not be used.
