URL: www.math.jmu.edu/~arnoldea
Office: Roop 111
Office Hours: MWThF 12:15PM-1:15PM and by appointment.
TEXT: Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, Peterson and Sochacki.
PREREQUISITE: Math 236
COURSE DESCRIPTION: In this course students will develop an understanding of the basic
theory, applications and connections of linear algebra and differential equations. We will cover most
of chapters 1-6 in the text although not necessarily in order. Topic include vector spaces, matri-
ces, determinants, linear transformations, eigenvectors, first order ordinary differential equations,
second order linear differential equations and systems of differential equations. We will use the
software system Maple to explore concepts. Maple is unfortunately NOT a free program. Maple is
available on the computers in Roop 103 and Burruss 030 and 130.
GRADING: The grading will be assigned on a 500 point scale:
A: 450-500
