I COURSE NUMBER: II COURSE TITLE:

Math 113 Linear Algebra (3 units) PRE-REQUISITE: MATH 105

III COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course uses postulational or axiomatic approach to introduce students to postulational and axiomatic mathematics. It also uses mechanical approach to apply theorems and concepts to its related disciplines. Computer Science and Information Technology students will find this subject an advantage since they will be introduced to the basic concepts needed in linear programming. IV COURSE OBJECTIVES: At the end of the course the students are expected to: 1. understand the fundamental concepts of matrices and determinants. 2. apply the concepts of matrices and determinants in solving systems of linear equation. 3. understand the concepts of vectors, linear transformation as well as eigenvectors and eigenvalues. 4. relate the basic principles of linear algebra to different fields of sciences as well as to real-life situations.
