Tuesdays and Thursdays 8:00-8:45 am using Canvas conference.You can also contact the Math Clinic and/or LRC in PKH 325 for help; tel = (817) 272-5674 (or try (817) 272-1749). Some (not all) tutors in the clinic should be able to address your questions. Meetings/appointments are via Microsoft Teams. Check their websites for details.

This course will make use of Canvas for some items.

Homework. Make sure you are viewing the most current version of the homework page and not the version in your browser's cache; reload the page from source, or clear the cache and reload the page. Skimming through the main ideas in a section shortly before that section is covered in class should help you understand the lecture -- try it!

(Link to instructor's homework assignments in Math 3330 in Fall 2018.)Some practice quizzes & tests from other courses/websites/universities with immediate feedback or solutions provided:

practice quiz on solving systems of linear equations

practice quiz on linear transformations and kernels, image, etc

practice quiz on linear spaces, dimension, bases, etc

practice quiz on determinants and diagonalizability

some practice quizzes & tests on various aspects of our course

some practice quizzes on various aspects of our course

some more practice quizzes on various aspects of our course.

Some online applets to help with calculations in this course:

toolkit to help with matrix row operations, finding the inverse of a matrix using row operations, determining if a set of vectors spans a certain subspace, finding bases, etc;

online help with matrix calculations such as solving a matrix equation, finding rank of a matrix, inverse of a matrix, matrix multiplication, or this other helpful website for finding eigenvectors and eigenvalues.

For those of you interested in applications of linear algebra, you could surf the web, or consult this website or this website at NASA or this other website at NASA or this other website for items to read.
