Change in course format
Please note that there will be weekly tests in the Werkcolleges, which will count towards your final grade.
For the course "Linear algebra 2" (Lineaire Algebra 2) there are lectures ("Hoorcolleges") and exercise classes ("Werkcolleges"). In each werkcollege the last 20 minutes will be a test on the material from the course up to that point. This will count towards your final grade.
The first lecture is on Monday 10 April at 13:45 in room B.02 (Snellius).
The first test is on Thursday 13 April at 11:15 in room B.02 (Snellius).
See timetable here.
We will follow closely parts of the book "Linear algebra and its applications" by David Lay. Every student will need a copy of the book; for example, weekly exercises will be set from the book, and the tests will contain similar questions.
Exam is vrijdag 23-06-2017, 10:00-13:00 uur in zaal 407-409, B02 en B03.
There is one exam for the course, after the end of the course (vrijdag 23-06-2017, 10:00-13:00 uur in zaal 407-409, B02 en B03, see timetable). The exam will last 3 hours. It will cover material from the whole course, including that already covered in the weekly tests.
The total examination grade is is then the weighted average:
Final grade = 0.25*W + 0.75 * E.
Each week, some problems from the book will be suggested. These will not be graded, and will not count towards the final grade. However, you are extremely strongly recommended to attempt all the problems - the problems in the short tests and the final exam will be similar, and past experience suggests that ability to do he homework problems is a very strong predictor of success in the course. The problems will be discussed during the classes, and you will have the opportunity to obtain help on problems you found difficult.
Office hours of the lecturer will be from 15:30 -16:30 on Mondays (or by appointment) in room 233 in Snellius.
