  • Overview

    This module will introduce students to the notions of vectors, matrices and linear maps in the context of Euclidean Space. The module aims to give students a working knowledge of the methods and applications of linear algebra. Applications will be chosen with their significance to the students disciplines in mind. Students will attend lectures on the course material and will work, independently, to solve problems on topics related to the course material. The students will have an opportunity to review their solutions, with guidance, at weekly tutorials.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. solve systems of linear equations.
    2. perform various operations with vectors and matrices.
    3. apply linear algebraic methods to geometic problems in 2 and 3 dimensions.
    4. demonstrate an understanding of concepts by use of examples or counterexamples.
