This course introduces students to the computational techniques, concepts, and applications of linear algebra. Topics in this course will include vectors, systems of linear equations, matrices, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and orthogonality. Several applications will also be covered such as allocation of resources, network analysis, Markov chains, and codes. Students with credit for MTH 217 may not subsequently enroll in MTH 170 without forfeiting MTH 217 credit.
