This course provides an introduction to linear algebra necessary in the following mathematical courses and specialized courses. The items are as follows: Matrix, linear transformation, inverse matrix, determinant, inverse matrix and simultaneous linear equations, diagonalization and Eigen values of matrix, and linear independency of vectors.

The classes consist of lectures and exercises. Students will give presentations on homework assignments in the classes.

This subject is related to the clause 2 of the diploma policy of the Department of Mechanical and Precision System.

This course aims to improve the students' basic knowledge of mathematics used by scientists and engineers and to enhance their overall mathematical levels by solving mathematical problems so that they can study textbooks in specialized courses on their own.

The term-end examination (80%) and presentations on homework assignments in the classes (20%) will be evaluated.

The acceptance line is accuracy rate of 60% in the above term-end examination and presentations on homework assignments.
