Vector algebra and geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space and extensions to n-space and vector spaces; lines and planes, matrices, linear transformations, systems of linear equations, reduction to row echelon form, dimension, rank, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization, Principal Axis Theorem.

This course introduces students to vectors, linear transformations, and matrices with applications to the geometry of Euclidean three-space and generalizations. The course usually begins with a careful study of the solution of linear systems of equations and ends with the orthogonal diagonalization of symmetric matrices. Topics include row reduction, determinants, bases, dimension, rank, nullity, eigenvalues, and eigenvectors. The course meets four times weekly with a faculty member in small sections. Only students who did very well in Calculus I should attempt this course before completing a full year of calculus.

Prerequisites: MATH:1850 or MATH:1550 or MATH:1860 or MATH:1560 or MPT Level 3 score of 15 or higher
