Math 341: Linear Algebra

 
Student Body: 

The audience for this course consists mostly of math majors, and students in sciences and engineering who need a proof-based course in linear algebra

Background and Goals: 

This course is part of a group of transitional courses for math majors. These courses are meant to provide instruction on how to write and understand proofs, while covering similar topics as Math 340. It is also recommended for those students in the sciences and engineering who want to have a more theoretical understanding of linear algebra. After completing Math 341, students should be prepared to take proof-based courses at the 5XX level. This course is designated a "writing-intensive" course.

Alternatives: 

Math 340 for less theoretical students, Math 375 for Honors students

Subsequent Courses: 

5XX-level courses in Math

Course Content: 

1) Vector Spaces. 2) Linear Transformations and Matrices. 3) Elementary Matrix Operations and Systems of Linear Equations. 4) Determinants. 5) Diagonalization. 6) Inner Product Spaces.
