The prerequisites for 15-458/858B include courses or other past experience in linear algebra and vector calculus. However, we realize that for many of you it may have been a while since you studied this material. The worksheets below provide optional practice for those who wish to brush up on their skills. To emphasize again: this material is purely for your own review; it is not a required assignment, nor will it be graded. You may also wish to review this material from time to time during the semester (e.g., when we study exterior calculus).
Please email us if you’d like to see the solutions! (We keep these solutions private so they can be re-used for other classes in future years.)
