Review Material From Math 221

Before the course starts I recommend that you review the following material.

Make sure you understand how to solve linear matrix-vector equations of the form Ax=b using Gaussian Elimination and that you understand the geometrical meaning of these equations. Also, refresh your memory on matrix multiplication criteria that ensure a matrix is invertible and how to find the inverse of an invertible matrix.

See Sections 1.1-1.3, 2.1-2.5, 3.2-3.7 of Meyer's book. The relevant material can also be found in Sections 1.1-1.6, 2.1-2.3 of Day's book.
