SUNY at Stony Brook MAT 211: Introduction to Linear Algebra
Spring 2018

Schedule and Homework

You are welcome to work with others or in a team on the homework problems. However, your final write-up must be completely your own and must be based on your own understanding. It is against university policy, and you will be penalized, if you copy answers from other students or from another resource (such as a webpage). Solutions should be legible and provide convincing, logically clear arguments (in the case of proofs).

You should first contact the grader if you have any questions about the grading of your homework. If that is not resolved satisfactorily, then see the instructor.

Late homework will not be accepted.

Due to limited resources, only a selection (so not all) of the homework problems will be graded each week. The grader decides which problems will be graded and so you will not know in advance which problems are actually graded.
