Text: David Lay Linear Algebra and its Applications, FourthEdition, Addison Wesley; ISBN-13: 978-0-321-38517-8
Calculator/Mathematica A Calculator or Mathematica is required for class. Calculator use may be restricted on some exams since more advanced calculators, like the TI-89 can do some of the computations that we expect you to learn to do with just pencil and paper.
Course Content This course presents the main concepts and terminology of linear algebra that pay an essential role in mathematics and in many technical areas of modern society, such as computer science, engineering, physics, environmental science, economics, statistics, business management and social sciences.
There will be two in class exams this semester and a final exam.
Homework will be assigned for section of the textbook we cover. A list of homework problems will be provided in class and also posted on the web. Do NOT email your homework to me! Homework must have
The following calendar gives a timetable for the course. We might be slightly behind or ahead at any given timei. Check here often, as the Calendar will be updated according to the pace of the class. Note: In the problem lists, a notation like 3-9 means that all the problems 3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are assigned.

Any student with a documented disability should contact your instructor early in the semester so that he or she may work out reasonable accommodations with you to support your success in this course. Students should also contact Disability Services for Students: Office of Student Life, 330 Memorial Union, 874-2098. They will determine with you what accommodations are necessary and appropriate. All information and documentation is confidential.
Sakai is being used in part to teach this course. Both projects MUST be submitted in Sakai using the Assignment tool. The Sakai site will contain your grades, links, and the Assignment tool for submission of your Projects. That means you should become familiar with using Sakai. You can access Sakai at the following web address: https://sakai.uri.edu/portal/ Use your e-campus id and your URI Webmail password.
