Learning Goals

Relate the algebra of linear equations to geometric ideas with vectors (e.g., orthogonality, dimension, subspaces).
How well did you achieve this learning goal in this course?


Analyze the behavior of multivariable functions via partial derivatives, and combine that information with tools of linear algebra (such as vectors, matrices, and eigenvalues) to solve optimization problems and characterize critical points (e.g., local maximum, local minimum, saddle point).
How well did you achieve this learning goal in this course?


Use projections and matrix algebra to perform tasks (e.g. best-fit line determination, Markov process analysis, basis computation, QR decomposition) that have wide use in modern applications.
