Emphasizes techniques of linear algebra with applications. Topics include matrix operations, determinants, solutions of systems of linear equations, linear independence, matrix factorization, linear transformations, vector spaces, orthogonality, inner products and norms, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. A graphing calculator is required.


Students are required to pass prerequisite courses with a grade of C or higher. Exceptions apply; please consult your department chair.
