Welcome to the 18.06 linear algebra front page!

Exams: Fridays, Feb 28, Apr 3, and May 1 all in Walker during the class hour (50-340). The final exam is 9am on Friday May 15 in JNSN-Ice Rink.

If you know you will need to miss an exam for an athletic game, please let your TA know early. Taking two courses at the same time is not an accepted excuse to miss an exam.

For illness or other personal circumstance a note from S3 is required. Under these circumstances, students can write a paper of 3 or more pages due within two weeks of the exam date on a topic in linear algebra such as history, an application, or a more advanced topic. Grades will then be interpolated (by human judgment, not a formula). Please contact the course administrator. Students with approved accomodations should make arrangments with Theresa Cummings (tcumming@mit.edu) in 2-110 , as soon as possible.

Grading; 15% Homeworks, 3 exams 45%, final exam 40%

Problem sets are due 11:59pm on Wednesdays through electronic submission on Gradescope. (No late homeworks accepted (one pset dropped) .) Collaborations allowed, but write up your own work.

The Math Learning Center is a great resource for academic help. We are hoping the level of computing won't require much help, but we are looking into a special tutor just for this purpose.

Announcement: On Tuesday February 18, MIT will hold Monday classes. Lecture will be held, recitations will not.

Please proceed to the live syllabus page and lecture summaries page.
