### MATH 1046 HELP SITE MAIN PAGE

Welcome to Nipissing University's MATH 1046 Help Site. This webpage contains tutorials, tests, and sample problems that will help students to better understand the concepts of the introductory linear algebra course. This site is meant to aid students in their understanding of linear algebra. Although this site covers most concepts of the course, many have been left out and will be covered in the lectures or in the textbook. Since this website is not a substitute for these resources, it is strongly recommended that students continue to go to lectures and read the chapters in their textbooks. The various sections of the help site are summarized below.

# TESTS

The tests are divided into 3 main groups, online preliminary tests, online general tests and advanced tests. The online tests can be found on the the ilrn website. For more information about ilrn, visit the tests section at the link below. The preliminary tests section covers general mathematical concepts at the high school level. The online general tests section covers the algebra concepts from the MATH 1046 course. The general tests are composed of questions similar to those that will appear on assignments and midterm exams. The advanced tests section can be found on the Math 1046 Help Site. This section contains more challenging problems that will further prepare students for midterm and final examinations.

All of the tests are constructed to give students feedback after completion. This will help students to realize which sections they may be a little weaker on.

# SAMPLE PROBLEMS

The sample problems section contains questions for the students to attempt to solve. The solutions for these problems will be posted after each specific concept is covered in the course. This will allow the students to compare their solutions to the full correct solutions, helping them to prepare for tests and exams.

# COMMON MISTAKES

Have you ever thought you had answered a problem on a test or assignment perfectly, only to have it returned full of red ink because you used an incorrect formula? The common mistakes section is devoted to listing some of the "infamous" formulas that may seem logical to students, but are completely meaningless to their professors. This section will ensure that students do not make these mistakes again.
