__Math 230__
-- __Honors Introductory Linear Algebra__

__Course Description__

This course will present a low-level introduction to the basics of linear algebra and matrix theory. Topics covered include systems of linear equations, determinants and matrix inverses, rank, eigenvalues, and eigenvectors. Discussions will be limited to real numbers and real spaces. Compared to Math 220 (Introductory Linear Algebra), increased emphasis will be given to proof-type problems and exercises in this Honors course. The software package MATLAB will also be introduced in a reasonably thorough fashion in this course. |
