- Math 255
(Textbook) NEW COURSE!
This class covers all the linear algebra covered in Math 250B, 250C, and 172, and possibly more (depending on time) in a comprehensive, focused manner, following a really great text by David Lay. Unlike 250B/C, the only prerequisite for this course is Math 150B, not 250A, so you can take it sooner if you want/need to. For those who want/need to learn linear algebra but don't want/need differential equations, this is DEFINITELY the course for you. Even if you do want/need differential equations, you may prefer taking this course and Math 260 (TAUGHT THIS SEMESTER BY PROF. SJOBERG) separately, rather than crammed together. Math 255 and 260 are fully transferable to CSU/UC -- in fact, unlike 250B/C, they both have already been approved by C-ID, California's course identification system for streamlined transfers.
