Textbook:  No textbook will be used. The lecture is selfcontained.  
Reference:  Optional. Elementary Linear Algebra with Applications, by Richard Hill. Third Edition. 1996.  
Objectives:  Learn how to solve and apply linear system of equations, using vectormatrix notations.  
Prerequisites:  MA 241 (Credit is not allowed for both MA 305 and MA 405)  
 
Computational Homeworks:  HW1, HW2, HW3

Grading:  The letter grade will be determined from the total numeric grade as follows:
The total numeric grade will be the sum of several numeric grades as follows:


Tests: 
All tests are closed book/notes. You should bring calculators to the tests. However, you are NOT allowed to bring computer algebra systems such as Maple to the tests. 

Attendance:  Required . The attendance grade is calculated as "5 * the number of attended classes / the total number of classes". Seats will be assigned by TA from the 2nd week of the semester. TA will check the attendance every class. If you have an official excuse, then give it to the TA and ask the TA to remove the absence mark from the record. Neither instructor nor TA will provide extrahelp on missed lectures, unless there is an official excuse.
