Linear Algebra

Credit Hrs: 3 Pre-requisite: None

Instructor: Mussarat Mansha Semester: Fall 2013

Capsule Statement:
This course provides an introduction to vector spaces. Its focus is on the abstract algebra i.e. group. ring and field. In this course we learn how to find orthonormal basis using orthogonal basis. It gives solution to linear equations graphically as well as algebraically. Consistency criteria of linear equations is also discussed in detail in this chapter.

Objectives of the course:

Its objective is to provide fundamentals of solution for system of linear equations, operations on system of equations, matrix properties and their solutions. It gives Eigen vectors corresponding to different Eigen values in 2 & 3 dimensional space.

Course Contents and Schedule:

Teaching Learning Strategies:

The following strategies would be adopted to encourage an interactive classroom experience: - Intensive use of discussion - Punctuating the lecture with questions - Asking students to interpret basis of vector spaces - Staging a debate on practical application of math concepts

Experiences of Teaching the Course

Number of times course taught:

2 (at Lahore Leads University)

Self Assessment of the course:

I have taught this course twice at Lahore Leads University. Being a large application in our practical life, students enjoyed that application. Because it is an abstract algebra we try to visualize the 4 dimensional space. Issues relating to students / Resolutions:

The anticipated problem we will face for this course at Lahore Leads University is the lack of mathematical exhibition and workshop. Through workshop and exhibition students learn more practical work.
