There will be a "quick" problem section, and a proof section. It will of course be longer, roughly in proportion to the extra time. <br /><br />The material covered will be up to the end of Chapt 8.Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-6416829892814381412007-03-19T00:34:00.000-07:002007-03-19T00:35:01.527-07:00Office Hours this weekIll be in my office from 11:30 - 2:30 tommorow.

Thus if you wish you may choose not to do this assignment. However you are still responsible for the material. <br /><br /><br />Chapt 7: 24,26,28,32<br />Chapt 8: 3,4,7,10,11,12Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-18736797248204236672007-03-03T08:37:00.000-08:002007-03-03T08:41:53.069-08:00HW 7Chapt 7 15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-16265136985441166312007-02-28T08:08:00.000-08:002007-02-28T08:10:10.325-08:00Final Exam informationOur final is on Wed, March 21 at 12:15 in 380Y.Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-53675785794531592762007-02-24T11:32:00.000-08:002007-02-24T11:43:19.295-08:00HW 6Chapt 7 1,2,4,5,8,10,12,14Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-83171491987464070912007-02-18T08:09:00.000-08:002007-02-18T08:11:02.561-08:00HW 5Chapt 6: 10,11,14,25,18,26,27,29.Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-36767065819871654902007-02-09T14:36:00.000-08:002007-02-09T14:37:11.086-08:00HW 4Chapt 5: 14,17,18,20,21,22,24<br />Chapt 6: 2,5Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-70296844982346755672007-02-06T12:03:00.001-08:002007-02-06T12:03:53.952-08:00No HW this weekYou don't have any Homework due this week.

From Chapter 5 you are responsible only for the<br />above homework's questions. You are responsible for the chapter 4 material on polynomials, but only in the sense that a polynomial may appear at some point in a question and you may need to use one of the facts there (which you presumably knew before you took this class).Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com4tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-68201442523549760012007-01-25T19:29:00.000-08:002007-01-26T13:42:06.693-08:00Midterm Next Thursday in ClassThe midterm will be next Thursday in class. The problems from the first 2 weeks will be of similar difficulty to the exercises in the backs of chapters 1-3. This includes both those exercises assigned to you and those which were not. You will also be tested on the material from the past week. However on this material I will pull questions directly from the coming assignment.Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-64091500182289599732007-01-18T15:42:00.000-08:002007-01-18T15:45:00.363-08:00Homework etc ... for week 2We covered through half of Chapter 3, around page 47. <br /><br />Your Homework assignment is:<br /><br />Chapt 2: 15,16<br />Chapt 3: 1,2,6,10,16,23Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com7tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-48459250881643702762007-01-11T13:15:00.000-08:002007-01-11T16:30:31.740-08:00Week 1: Home work, and what we coveredWe covered Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 up to page 27, the definition of a basis.<br />Homework: All problems are from the text - Linear Algebra Done Right.<br /><br />Chapter 1: Problems 1,3,6,7,13<br />Chapter 2: Problems 3,6,8,12Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5402700681840022628.post-35746965203965506672007-01-08T12:36:00.001-08:002007-01-08T13:42:54.662-08:00Warning: Math aheadThis course will be taught quite theoretically, and at a fast pace! As a result, the homework will be heavy too. If you are interested mainly in applications to other fields, or prefer to deal only with concrete objects, you should take Math 103 instead.Joseph Coffeyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09814174644942173398noreply@blogger.com1
