This section of Math 220 is about elementary linear algebra with MAPLE. That is, it is a "computer oriented" linear algebra section. You don't need to be a computer expert to register in this section. You will learn all what you need for the course during the semester. However you must be aware that this means that there are going to be computer LABS concerning the topics we discuss in class. The final grade will be based on the results from 4 exams PLUS the labs.
There will be four in--class exams. I will count the best three towards your final grade. Your grade for the course will be the sum of all these exams plus the grade from your labs. There will be no cummulative final exam.
It is your responsibility to be aware of the dates of the exams and the content and due date of assignments. If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to be aware of the topics discussed during that class, the assigned homework and the and the possibly given assignment. There is no reason to miss an exam other than getting sick (bring note from doctor), being on a team that has a game at the same time an exam is given (bring a note from your coach), or a death or serious illness in your family. In the event you can not attend an exam, that will count as your worst exam out of the other 3. There will be NO MAKE UP exams.
