Math 254 Syllabus, Spring 2006


The course will use the ninth edition of Anton's Elementary Linear Algebra. We will proceed through the text in the order given and expect to cover the first eight chapters.

Unit 1 -- Chapters 1-3; five weeks followed by a midterm.
Unit 2 -- Chapters 4-5; five weeks followed by a midterm.
Unit 3 -- Chapters 6-8; five weeks followed by a comprehensive final which counts as two midterms.

For a projected time table, see TimeTable.pdf

Grading is on the exams (75%), and the homework (25%). Homework is intended for practice and feedback rather than to test your proficiency. Getting 80% of the problems correct gives you a 100% on the homework grade.
