MATH10202 Linear Algebra A (2019-20)

This course unit is an introduction to linear algebra for first year, single honours mathematics students. This is the page for the first half of the course, which is lectured by Mark Kambites. Lectures for the second half of the course will be given by Charles Eaton. Charles's material is available here.

COVID-19 Information: the course is currently being taught online due to the campus closure. Please check your University email and Charles's page regularly for updates. Further information:

Strike Information: due to the UCU industrial action, material between Sections 5.4 and 6.2 of the notes was not covered in lectures. This material remains examinable, and students are advised to learn it independently from the notes. Please see also Charles's webpage for strike information concerning his part of the course.

....both of which are available in the library. 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. I recommend using the notes, rather than the podcasts, for catching up on missed lectures. If you do wish to use the recordings they can be found here.

Timetable / Support

All face-to-face classes are suspended due to the campus closure. Please check your email regularly for announcements about online provision.
