This is the common calendar. For course policies, please read the syllabus carefully.
Also:
1. Check out the games and demos page!
2. We have a reference sheet with
important terms and concepts.
3. There is also the
interactive row reducer, which
is great for checking your steps as you perform row reduction.
4. In addition to the slides below, Dan Margalit has written a set
of his own slides, which you can find
here.
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.
