I am the lecturer for this course. This page contains useful
information and handouts. The text
is *Linear Functions and Matrix Theory* by Jacob. The course will
cover most, but not all, of Chapters
1 to 8. Please see the Course Document via the link below for more
basic details.

Homework is due during the lecture on the Friday after it is assigned. Remember to staple your homework together on the top left-hand corner and write your name on the front sheet. Neat homework makes happy graders, which leads to a better grade for you. :) I will post the homework at the bottom of this webpage.

I will hold office hours 2-3pm on Wednesday and 3-4pm on Thursday. I will also answer emailed questions. My office is in the basement 5720 S. Woodlawn Avenue: directions and other contact details are on this link. There will be a weekly problem session on Thursdays at 8pm in Eckhart 308.

The first mid-term exam will be on the Friday of 5th week and the second will be on the Wednesday of 9th week.
