Course description: Linear algebra has wide applications to diverse areas in natural science, engineering, management and social science. Instructed by university teachers, the course "Linear Algebra I" (MATH2101) will provide gifted secondary school students with the basic concept of linear structure through many concrete examples in the Euclidean spaces. Upon satisfactory completion of the course, students will be awarded six credits if they eventually study in the Faculty of Science at HKU (for other HKU faculties, subject to the approval of individual faculties).
Course contents: Same as a regular university course at HKU, this course will comprise lectures and tutorials. It will cover basic theory of linear algebra in the following areas:
Assessment: Assignments (10%), two midterm tests (40%) and one final exam (50%)
