MTH 260 - Linear Algebra

4 Credit(s)

This course provides a mathematical foundation of computation, terminology and theory of linear algebra. The course covers systems of linear equations, vectors in a geometric setting, real vector spaces, matrices, operations on matrices, inversion of matrices, determinants, linear transformations, dot product and cross product, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

Prerequisite: MTH 232  or MTH 252  with a grade of C- or better within the past five years.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will:

  1. Perform basic operations of matrix algebra and apply them to solve systems of linear equations.
  2. Discuss the basic concepts of vector spaces, linear transformations and inner product spaces.
  3. Interpret the concepts of vector spaces from a geometric perspective.
  4. Apply the techniques of linear algebra to problems in applied mathematics such.as the calculation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
  5. Apply the knowledge of linear algebra to numerical methods such as Gaussian Elimination.
