**Course Description:** The methods of Linear Algebra and Differential Equations are of fundamental importance in mathematics as well as in applications to science, engineering or economics. We will spend approximately 2/3 of the semester on Linear Algebra covering the first 6 chapters of Lay’s et al. book. The remaining 1/3 will be spent on the first 3 chapters from Boyce and DiPrima. Below you will find a tentative schedule of the material to be covered each week. You are expected to read the material before the class as typically the instructors will not cover all the details of a given section. Also there will not be enough time to discuss applications and you are highly encouraged to do some additional reading – e.g., chapter introductions or ”application” sections (such as section 1.6 in Lay’s book).

**Exams:** There will be 3 midterm exams and a final exam. Exams may be made up only with an official University excuse. Conflicts with other exams must be resolved well in advance of the exam date. Please check your exam schedules and contact your dean’s office as soon as you become aware of any such conflict. Calculators will not be allowed on exams.

Midterm 1: Tuesday, September 24, 8:00 AM – 9:15 AM, 110 Mendoza College of Business

Midterm 2: Thursday, October 31, 8:00 AM – 9:15 AM, 101 DeBartolo Hall

Midterm 3: Tuesday, November 19, 8:00 AM – 9:15 AM, 101 DeBartolo Hall

Final Exam: Thursday, December 19, 1:45 PM – 3:45 PM, 155 DeBartolo Hall.

**Homework:** The assignments are posted in the assignment link below. Unfortunately, late assignments will not be accepted. In order not to fall behind schedule you should try to solve the problems on the same day on which they are assigned.

**Quizzes:** Quizzes will take place weekly during tutorials and will test material already covered in class by the previous Monday. If you have an excused absence then your quiz score will be rescaled to take account only of the quizzes you were able to take.

**Grades:** Grades will be based on the total score out of 550 maximum points according to the following breakdown:

Homework — 60pts

Quizzes — 40pts

Midterm 1 — 100pts

Midterm 2 — 100pts

Midterm 3 — 100pts

Final Exam — 150 pts

**Honor Code:** The Honor Code is in effect for all exams and assignments. You are encouraged to work together on assignments. Copying in any form or submitting work done by others as your own is a violation of the Honor Code.
