Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
In this subject, students develop an understanding of the theory of finite dimensional linear algebra, applications of this theory in areas such as statistical analysis and the solution of differential equations and some of the main computational techniques used in these applications. Topics include systems of linear equations (LU factorisation and iterative methods); vector spaces; inner product spaces; Gram-Schmidt orthogonalisation, QR decomposition; approximation theory: least squares and orthogonal polynomials; the eigenvalue problem; Singular value decomposition and applications.
