Terms: 2 (fall and winter)
Prerequisite: AP Calculus BC (may be taken concurrently) and permission of the department.
Linear algebra is a branch of mathematics that studies vector spaces, also called linear spaces, along with linear functions. The class will include the study of vector spaces, linear transformations, matrices, systems of linear equations, bases, projections, rotations, determinants, and inner products. Applications may include differential equations, difference equations, least squares approximations, and models in economics and the sciences. The syllabus and text used is similar to a one-semester university course, but does not typically allow the student to bypass a university requirement in Linear Algebra. After the course is completed in the winter term, students are encouraged to enroll in one of the department spring electives.
