### First Year Math

Math 100: Math 100/102/104/120/180/184: Differential Calculus when you click on the Differential Calculus, you can find more detailed topics.

Math 101: Math 101/103/105/121:Integral Calculus

### Second Year Math

Math 221: Math 221/223 :Linear Algebra

- One good resource is the lecture notes from professor Nike Vastal's math 221 homepage : [1]
- Another resource is a good book on constrained optimization and linear programming: "Fundamental Methods of Mathematical Economics" by Alpha C. Chiang (McGraw Hill, 1984), with emphasis on Chapter 12 (especially sections 12/2-12.3 and 12.5) with pages 93-95 relevant for those looking for a treatment of determinants. Calculus textbooks normally do not cover optimization programs.
- Video lectures of Professor Gilbert Strang at MIT http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Mathematics/18-06Spring-2005/VideoLectures/index.htm

Math 220:Math 220: Mathematical Proof

### First and Second Year Math Exam Resources
