    Math 314: Linear Algebra - Fall 2011

    Announcements 

    • Quiz Friday on Sections 6.1-5.
    • You will be allowed a single 3x5 inch handwritten note card during the final exam. The exam is comprehensive, but will emphasize more recent material.
    • Study guides and examples for the sections will be provided in the Attachments section below. 

    Homework Instructions
    Homework is due by 4:30 PM on the date assigned. No late homework will be accepted except by prior arrangement. You may submit your homework in class or in my box in the Math and Statistics Department office.

    Formatting Instructions

    • All homework must be submitted in a neat, legible and organized fashion. 
    • Your name, class section and due date should appear in the top right hand corner of the first page.
    • Your assignment must be stapled together (not paperclipped, not crimped). Staple all assignments due on the same date together.
    • If your paper came from a spiral bound notebook, you must remove all the pokey out bits (the edges of the page should be straight and clean).
    Failure to follow these instructions will result in deductions from your grade.
