Students will have a solid understanding of the concepts listed below. They will be able to prove theorems that are central to this material, including theorems that they have not seen before. They will understand connections between the concepts taught, and be able to relate them to other mathematical material that they have studied. They will be able to perform the related computations on small, simple problems.

  1. Abstract Vector Spaces
    • Vector Algebra
    • Subspaces and Spans
    • Linearly Independent Sets
    • Products, Sums, and Complements
  2. Differentiation rules
