## Books

Linear Algebra with Applications by W. Keith Nicholson This is a free PDF book online with resourses (see eClass for more tools). Note that the book is free but the mandatory access to Lyryx is reasonable but not free

## Course description:

Systems of linear equations, matrix algebra, determinants and diagonalization, vector geometry, and the vector space \$R^n\$. The plan is to cover material from the first 5 chapters of the text book.

• Chapter 1: Systems of Linear Equations 
• Chapter 2: Matrix Algebra 
• Chapter 3: Determinants and Diagonalization 
• Chapter 4: Vector Geometry 
• Chapter 5: The Vector Space \$R^n\$
Some material may be skipped or added depending on our needs. The course will deal with the computations of solving linear equations as well as abstract concepts.
Prerequisites: Advanced Functions (MHF4U) or equivalent.
Course credit exclusions: SC/MATH 1025 3.00, SC/MATH 2221 3.00, GL/MATH/MODR2650 3.00.
More detailed description can be found on the eClass page of the class.

## Evaluation:

Grades will determined by the following scheme with final grade assigned according to York University's grading scheme.
• Lyryx Quizzes: 30% [using Lyryx online tools, best 9/10 quizzes]
• Test 30% [test should be in person, if possible, otherwise online using eClass]
• Final exam 40% [Should be in person]
There will be quizzes assignments online using Lyryx. The due dates for the quiz assignments will be found in lyryx. The test will be 70 minutes long (during the class of Oct 20). The Final Exam will be 3 hours long (with date to be determined).

## Course Policies:

Missed or late quiz: Quizzes are completed online using Lyryx. Late quizz will not be axcepted. Students are encouraged to start practicing their work on quiz lab early.
Missed test: Students with a documented reason for missing the test, such as illness, compassionate grounds, etc., which is confirmed by supporting documentation (e.g., doctor's letter) may request accommodation from the Course Instructor in the form of transferring the weight of the missed test to the final exam.
Missed final exam: The instructor must be notified by email no later than 24 hours after the missed final exam. To make up the final exam, an Attending Physicians Statement (APS) must be completed by the students health provider, and a clear photo or scan of the APS must be emailed to the instructor within 48 hours of the missed exam. The APS form can be downloaded from http: //myacademicrecord.students.yorku.ca/deferred-standing. No other form of doctors note will be accepted. The student must also complete and submit the Final Exam/Assignment Deferred Standing Agreement form within one week after the missed final exam. If the APS meets the above requirements the in- structor will sign the deferred standing agreement and the student will write an exam set by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. If, however, the APS does not meet the above requirements, there will be no agreement to de- ferred standing and the student must petition their home Faculty.
