          Linear Algebra with Applications (Tenth Edition) by Leon & de Pillis, Prentice Hall 2020.

           This is the textbook & it is also used by the other section - but if you cannot get it then the Alternative

          Textbook is Linear Algebra with Applications (Ninth Edition) by Stephen J. Leon, Prentice Hall 2016.

          Contains the list of all the relevant homework problems for the course (for both the 9th & 10th editions)

          Proof of Theorem 5 & Similar matrices     Supplementary problems for the fundamental subspaces of A    


         Review Sheets:

              Review for Test #1                            Review for Test #2

        Most of the questions in the exams usually come from the topics in the Review,  but

          this cannot always be so because everything we cover cannot always fit on one page.

         The Review sheets for the Final just consists of all the Reviews for Tests #1 & #2.
