MAT 131.2: Linear Algebra and Analytic Geometry for AMI/SFW

ID:  3828

6 credits

Prerequisites: none

This course will introduce to the elements of linear algebra and analytic geometry with examples from real life and various sciences. In selecting such problems for our examples and exercises we highlighted this motivation by references to applications in the social, business, and life sciences. The course was prepared with three related objectives: concreteness, motivation and applicability. The course is recommended for  AMI and SFW students.
