**MATH10202: LINEAR ALGEBRA A (2018-2019) - 2nd half**

This course unit is an introduction to linear algebra for first year, single honours mathematics students.

This is the page for the second half of the course, following on from the part lectured by Mark Kambites.

It is not expected that you understand everything during lectures - you will need to study your lecture notes afterwards.

Exercises will appear below.

- Exercise Sheet 6
- Exercise Sheet 7
- Exercise Sheet 8
- Exercise Sheet 9
- Exercise Sheet 10
- Exercise Sheet 11

Solutions to exercises will appear here after you have had time to attempt the questions on your own:

- Solutions to Exercise Sheet 6
- Solutions to Exercise Sheet 7
- Solutions to Exercise Sheet 8
- Solutions to Exercise Sheet 9
- Solutions to Exercise Sheet 10
- Solutions to Exercise Sheet 11

Printed notes will appear here:

- Notes for Section 7 (Diagonalization and quadratic forms)
- Notes for Section 8 (Vector spaces)
- Notes for Section 9 (Spanning sets and linear independence)
- Notes for Section 10 (Bases)
- Notes for Section 11 (Co-ordinates and change of basis)
- Notes for Section 12 (Linear transformations)
- Notes for Section 13 (The matrix of a linear transformation)
- Notes for Section 14 (Subspaces associated with matrices) (heavily updated 26/4/2019)

Video podcasts of lectures are available, but these are intended as an
additional resource and **not** a core part of the course
or a substitute for attendance at lectures. The format of the
lectures will be tailored to those present in the room, not to the
recording, and I make no guarantees
about the quality or reliability of the recordings.
If you do wish to use the recordings they can be found
here.

We have four hours of lectures per week: **Monday 11:00-13:00**
and **Tuesday 13:00-15:00**. All lectures will be in
**Chemistry G.51** and will have a short break in (approximately)
the middle.

In addition to lectures you will have a one-hour Feedback Supervision every week, on
Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday - see your personal timetable in the
Student Portal, or if you
know your supervision group number you can work it out from
this timetable.
The supervisions are your main opportunity for support and feedback on
your work, and attendance is compulsory. The supervisions in Week *n*
will look mainly at Exercise Sheet n-1; you should arrive at the
supervision having looked at all exercises on the sheet, and bring a copy of
the sheet with you.

90% of the final mark will come from the final exam, and 10% from homework and supervision attendance.
