WHAT IS MATH 102?This is a second undergraduate course in linear algebra. In this course we will cover systems of linear equations, matrices, determinants and vector spaces. We will cover selected topics from Chapters 1-6 in the textbook.

  Poole, David.  Linear Algebra - A Modern Introduction, Third Edition (Brooks/Cole, 2011). You are expected to read the text BEFORE each lecture. It is very important that you ATTEND each lecture. The students enrolled in this class are expected to be familiar with the material in Chapters I and II of the textbook. Although these chapters will be briefly reviewed in class, the students are strongly advised to review sections 1.1-1.3 and 2.1-2.3 on their own before the end of the first week of classes.
