LINEAR ALGEBRA

Course Description This course provides a study of linear algebra topics with emphasis on the development of
both abstract concepts and applications. Topics include vectors, systems of equations , matrices,
determinants, vector spaces, linear transformations in two or three dimensions, eigenvectors,
eigenvalues, diagonalization, and orthogonality. Upon completion, students should be able to
demonstrate both an understanding of the theoretical concepts and appropriate use of linear algebra
models to solve application problems. This course has been approved to satisfy the Comprehensive
Articulation Agreement general education core requirement in natural science/ mathematics .

Prerequisite : MAT 271

Textbook: David C. Lay, Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Third Edition,
Addison Wesley Publishing Company, 2003

Course Goal: Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate both an
understanding of the theoretical concepts and appropriate use of linear
algebra models to solve application problems.

Course Specific Competencies: Upon successful completion of the course, the student
should be able to:
• solve linear equations in linear algebra.
• solve problems using matrix algebra.
• solve problems in vector spaces.
• evaluate eigenvalues and solve problems using eigenvectors.
• solve problems of orthogonality and least squares .
• solve problems using symmetric matrices and quadratic forms .
