Homework

The exercise list below will be updated as the semester progresses.

  • 1.1 (1-4, 7-14, 17-26) [3, 4, 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, 23, 24, 25, 26]
  • 1.2 (1-4, 7-16, 19-27, 30, 31) [2, 8, 10, 12, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 30, 31] Note: The instructions on problems 1-2 are unclear, since some matrices in echelon form are in reduced echelon form, and some matrices in echelon form are not in reduced echelon form, and some are not in echelon form. You should distinguish between these three types as reduced echelon form, echelon form, and not echelon form, respectively.
