Linear algebra has wide applications to diverse areas in natural science, engineering, management and social science. Instructed by university teachers, this course will provide students with the basic concept of linear structure through many concrete examples in the Euclidean spaces.
It will cover basic theory of linear algebra in the following areas:
- Linear Equations and Matrices
- Vector Geometry
- Vector Spaces and Linear Transformations
On successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
|Course Learning Outcomes (CLO)|
|CLO 1||handle matrix operations and use them in some practical problems|
|CLO 2||solve systems of linear equations by Gauss-Jordan elimination and also compute inverses of square matrices|
|CLO 3||understand the concept of vector spaces, basis, dimension, and linear transformations and compute the matrix representations of some linear transformations|
|CLO 4||solve some simple eigenvalue problems and apply the theory to some practical problems|
|CLO 5||solve some minimization problems by the least squares method|
36 contact hours + 120 learning hours
Assignments (10%), two midterm tests (40%) and one 2.5 hour written examination (50%)
No supplementary examination will be offered.
#Important Note: You are required to settle the application fee of HK$350 (non-refundable) when applying for admission to this credit-bearing summer course.
