Homework Problems for Chapter 2
The Vector Space
Problems marked with an asterisk ( ) will be collected and
graded. In general, problems will be due the day following
the lecture in which the section was discussed.
The selected problems require a mixture of computation and
theory to answer. In most cases the problems are not difficult
once the question is identified and understood. The key to
this is a thorough understanding of the vocabulary and various
connections between the concepts.
If you need more practice, there are many other problems
in the text that are similar to the ones I have assigned.
There are two sections of review problems at the end of
each chapter. None of these problems will be collected for
grading. These problems should be a good test of your understanding
of the main points in the chapter. I suggest solving these problems
as one part of your preparation for an exam.
Be sure you know how to do all of these problems. Do not
hesitate to ask questions - in class, by e-mail, or during
