- Goal of the class: Students will become proficient in both using and understanding the theory and algorithms of linear algebra and will learn how to write rigorous mathematical arguments.
- You may use any aid for the homework assignments (for example textbooks or collaborations with classmates)
- Both for homework assignments and exams: write full arguments with eligible handwriting and clear language.
- Homework for the sections covered in a week will be due and collected at the beginning of the following Friday's class. The assignments might change due to schedule issues, so you should check the updated list after the last class of the week.
- Late homework assignments will not be accepted.
- Multi-page submissions must be stapled or they may be returned ungraded. Paper clips do not suffice as pages can and often do become separated.
- There no make-ups with the exception of the following situations:
Please visit these webpages to familiarize yourself with the procedures.
- The Midterms and the Final are held in-class. Notes/books are prohibited and all electronic devices must be powered down during the exams. You have to present clearly written, individual work (no collaborations).
- You may bring one sheet of paper with handwritten material (with Lemmas, Theorems, formulas, etc.) on both sides. No print-outs though.
- Ethics: Students are expected to adhere to the Duke Community Standard. You must reaffirm your commitment to these standards on all work. For quizzes, in-class exams, and the final exam, you must work completely independently without collaboration with others.
In a case of academic dishonesty that is resolved directly through a faculty-student resolution agreement approved by the Office of Student Conduct, the terms of that agreement will dictate the grading response to the activity at issue. If a student is found responsible through the Office of Student Conduct for academic dishonesty on a graded activity in this course, and the infraction is not resolved by a faculty-student resolution agreement, then the student will receive a score of zero for that activity, and the instructor reserves the right to further reduce the final grade for the course by one or more letter grades, possibly to a failing grade.
