Textbook: O. Bretscher, Linear Algebra, 4th Ed., Prentice Hall.
Course material: We'll cover (with some omissions) Chapters 1--3 and 5--8.
Prerequisite: Math 32A with a grade of C- or better.
Homework: The homework is due every Friday in class (if Friday is a holiday, the homework is due on Wednesday). Graded homework will be returned to you in your section on Tuesday or Thursday. The homework is an essential part of the class. Each week, several chosen problems will be graded, and in addition a certain score will be assigned for completeness. Two lowest homework scores will be dropped in the computation of your final grade. Late homework will not be accepted and there will be no make-up homework.
Midterms: There will be two midterms on Monday, Oct. 17th and Friday, Nov. 4th during regular class hours. Please make sure you have no time conflicts. There will be no make-up exams. However, if you miss a midterm, the missed midterm will not count but the final exam will count for more.
Final Exam: The final exam will take place on Tuesday Dec 6th, 11:30am-2:30pm. Do not take this class if you have a time conflict for the final. The final exam will be comprehensive and will cover all of the class material.
Grading: Your final class score will be computed as the maximum of the following:
Grading complaints: If you believe a problem on a homework or an exam has been graded incorrectly, or that your score was not correctly recorded, you must bring this to the attention of the instructor within 14 calendar days of the due date of the assignment in question, or the date of the exam or quiz, and before the date of the final exam. Grading complaints not initiated within this period of time will not be considered. Please verify in a timely manner that your scores are correctly recorded on MyUCLA.
