This is the common calendar.

For course policies, please read the syllabus carefully.

Please note that the schedule is tentative and may be changed without notice, especially before the semester begins.

Sections listed below correspond to Interactive Linear Algebra by Margalit and Rabinoff.

Also:

Check out the games and demos page!

We have a reference sheet with important terms and concepts.

There is also the interactive row reducer, which is great for checking your steps as you perform row reduction.

In addition to the slides below, Dan Margalit has written a set of his own slides, which you can find here.
