in abstract linear algebra.
Instructor: Ko Honda
at math dot ucla dot edu)
Class Meetings: Every week there will be three hours of lecture as well as two hours of discussion.
Remote learning/teaching: I
plan to provide lecture notes for each lecture and also record
the lectures. If for some reason (i) my internet
connection is not working or is cut off or (ii) your connection
is cut off, please read the lecture notes and the
textbook. Also, if there are technical difficulties when
you're taking a quiz/exam or you have personal difficulties
(such as illness) on the day of the quiz/exam, please send me an
email and we'll try to make alternate arrangements.
(I realize that the internet connection is not always reliable
and some people have less-than-ideal study conditions at home,
so I'll try to be flexible.)
This class participates in a textbook program called Inclusive Access. You should be receiving an e-mail from the UCLA Store with instructions on how to access your course content on CCLE. (The e-mail will be sent to the address on file with the registrar’s office.)
