MTH 275: Linear Algebra

Summer 2016
Prof. Shaska

MTH 275          Linear Algebra (4 credits)
Room:              120 MCS
Time:               MTWR:  9:45-11:20
Office hours:     MTWR: 11:20-12:00

Class starts: July 5, 2016

Final Exam:     August 22, 8:00-11:00

Prerequisite: MTH 155 or equivalent. 


There will be a homework set at the end of each chapter which will have to be turned in for grading. There will also be two midterms and the final.  The scores will be weighted as follows:
  • Homework  and Quizzes             10%
  • Project # 1                                   10 %
  • Project  #2                                   10%
  • Midterm I:                                    20%   
  • Midterm II:                                   20%   
  • Final                                            30%
  •                                                 ___________
          Total                                                T

Grades will be computed using the Oakland University guidelines.  

  94% --> 4.0
  50% ---> 1.0

Using a linear model we have   Grade = (T-35)/15, where T is the total score for the semester.  

Course Policies 

For all the problems and concerns you might have you must talk to me. No makeups will be given other then in case of documented emergencies. Cellular phones or any electronic equipment are NOT allowed during lecture. I do not tolerate any kind of academic dishonesty. Appropriate measures according to Oakland University regulations will be taken for any case of cheating or breaking other rules. Come to my office hours to contact me.  I check email only during working days. 
  • Attendance is mandatory.  (More than 3 absences and you will not be allowed to enter the final exam). If you miss a class, then you are responsible to find class notes and assignments from your friends. You can come to my office hours for clarifications, but I will not lecture again for you what you missed. 
  • Email Policy:  I do not respond to emails about course policies or problems/homework already discussed during class.  For such questions you should come to my office hours. 

Please keep the following calendar in mind when planning for this course.  Notice that I reserve the right to change the dates of the midterms if I consider appropriate.
