Instructor notes: Greetings! This Elementary Linear Algebra class requires a subscription to Cengage Unlimited which includes WebAssign which houses the online quizzes and textbook. You will need a TI-84 calculator (there are some good apps for under $7), access to printing and/or a tablet you can annotate, and access to reliable internet several times per week. We will have 2 exams and a final which must be taken at the Academic Proctoring Center on campus or at an approved proctoring site. All other assignments are completed via Canvas or WebAssign. I created guided notes with companion videos for our lectures. The guided notebook may be printed out or purchased at the bookstore for around $20. This course is eligible for Honors, if you are interested. I look forward to serving as your instructor this semester! Best, Shannon
