Students with disabilities: If you need accommodations for any physical, psychological, or learning disability, please get in touch with me so that we can make the necessary arrangements. I will review the basic concepts from linear algebra when they will be used but prior experience is necessary ideally you would have taken MATH but MATH 54 is also okay if you work hard. The Finalis on 16 December from 8 am to 11 am. This is a slightly advanced book however.
