 Description:
 Concludes the treatment of single variable calculus and covers basic linear algebra. The first 1/3 of this course covers some chapters of single variable calculus not treated in Math 1501. The remaining 2/3 is an introduction to linear algebra, the theory of linear equations in several variables. (Prerequisite: Math 1501.)
 Textbooks:
 Calculus, one and several variables, Salas, Hille, Etgen, 10th edition. (This text is required.)
 Linear Algebra, Lay, 4th edition. (Students are required to purchase MyMathLab; no text is required.)
 Homework, Quizzes, and Exams:
 Homework for the calculus portion will not be collected/graded, while the linear algebra portion will be administered through MyMathLab and count towards the course grade.

A 15minute quiz will take place on Wednesday every week except the last week and the weeks of midterm exams.
Quiz problems will be similar to the assigned homework problems.
 There will be three midterm exams and a final exam (see Important Dates).
The lowest midterm score will be substituted by the final score if the latter is higher.
 No makeups will be given for quizzes and midterms.
 Homework problem sets and practice problems for the midterm exams will be posted on the webpage.
 Grades:

The usual tenpoint scale will be used (A: 90100%, B: 8089%, C: 7079%, D:
6069%, F: 059%); if necessary, adjustments will be made to arrive at a standard
grade distribution.
 The total homework score counts towards 10% of the grade, the total for 10 best quizzes  15%, each midterm exam  15%, and the final exam earns 30%.

 Calculators are not allowed.
 Students with learning disabilities should consult www.adapts.gatech.edu on how to accommodate their needs.
