# 13.4: Review Problems - Mathematics

1. Let (P_{n}(t)) be the vector space of polynomials of degree (n) or less, and (frac{d}{dt} colon P_{n}(t) o P_{n}(t)) be the derivative operator. ( extit{Recall from chapter 6 that the derivative operator is linear.

2. When writing a matrix for a linear transformation, we have seen that the choice of basis matters. In fact, even the order of the basis matters!

1. Write all possible reorderings of the standard basis ((e_{1},e_{2},e_{3})) for (Re^{3}).
2. Write each change of basis matrix between the standard basis and each of its reorderings. Make as many observations as you can about these matrices: what are their entries? Do you notice anything about how many of each type of entry appears in each row and column? What are their determinants? (Note: These matrices are known as ( extit{permutation matrices}).)
3. Given (L:Re^{3} o Re^{3}) is linear and [Legin{pmatrix}xyzend{pmatrix}=egin{pmatrix}2y-z3x2z+x+yend{pmatrix}]

write the matrix (M) for (L) in the standard basis, and two reorderings of the standard basis. How are these matrices related?

3. Let $$X={heartsuit,clubsuit,spadesuit}, ,quad Y={*,star}, .$$ Write down two different ordered bases, (S,S') and (T,T') respectively, for each of the vector spaces (mathbb{R}^{X}) and (mathbb{R}^{Y}). Find the change of basis matrices (P) and (Q) that map these bases to one another. Now consider the map
$$ell:Y o X, ,$$
where (ell(*)=heartsuit) and (ell(star)=spadesuit). Show that (ell) can be used to define a linear transformation (L:mathbb{R}^{X} omathbb{R}^{Y}). Compute the matrices (M) and (M') of (L) in the bases (S,T) and then (S',T'). Use your change of basis matrices (P) and (Q) to check that (M'=Q^{-1}MP).

4. Recall that (tr MN = tr NM). Use this fact to show that the trace of a square matrix (M) does not depend not the basis you used to compute (M).

5. When is the (2 imes 2) matrix (egin{pmatrix}a & b c & dend{pmatrix}) diagonalizable? Include examples in your answer.

6. Show that similarity of matrices is an ( extit{equivalence relation}).

7. ( extit{Jordan form})
a) Can the matrix (egin{pmatrix}
lambda & 1
0 & lambda
end{pmatrix}) be diagonalized? Either diagonalize it or explain why this is impossible.

b) Can the matrix (egin{pmatrix}
lambda & 1 & 0
0 & lambda & 1
0 & 0 & lambda
end{pmatrix}) be diagonalized? Either diagonalize it or explain why this is impossible.

c) Can the (n imes n) matrix (egin{pmatrix}
lambda & 1 & 0 & cdots & 0 & 0
0 & lambda & 1 & cdots & 0 & 0
0 & 0 & lambda & cdots & 0 & 0
vdots & vdots & vdots & ddots & vdots & vdots
0 & 0 & 0 & cdots & lambda & 1
0 & & 0 & cdots & 0 & lambda
end{pmatrix}) be diagonalized? Either diagonalize it or explain why this is impossible.

( extit{Note:}) It turns out that every matrix is similar to a block matrix whose diagonal blocks look like diagonal matrices or the ones above and whose off-diagonal blocks are all zero. This is called the ( extit{Jordan form}) of the matrix and a (maximal) block that looks like
[
left(
egin{array}{ccccc}
lambda & 1 & 0&cdots & 0
0 & lambda & 1 & & 0
vdots & &ddots &ddots &
&&&lambda&1
0 &0 && 0 & lambda
end{array} ight)
]
is called a ( extit{Jordan (n)-cell}) or a ( extit{Jordan block}) where (n) is the size of the block.

8. Let (A) and (B) be commuting matrices (( extit{i.e.}), (AB = BA)) and suppose that (A) has an eigenvector (v) with eigenvalue (lambda). Show that (Bv) is also an eigenvector of (A) with eigenvalue (lambda). Additionally suppose that (A) is diagonalizable with distinct eigenvalues. What is the dimension of each eigenspace of (A)? Show that (v) is also an eigenvector of (B). Explain why this shows that (A) and (B) can be ( extit{simultaneously diagonalized}) (( extit{i.e.}) there is an ordered basis in which both their matrices are diagonal.)

## Math 233 FALL 2012

1. Homework:
We will be using WebAssign for homework.

The access code (class key) to self-enroll is:

Section 1: WUSTL 0199 1768

Section 2: WUSTL 8806 1253

There are going to be 11 sets of homework assignments. The lowest homework grade will be dropped, and the remaining 11 will be counted towards your final course grade. The homework is due on Wednesdays 5pm (starting from Wednesday September 12).
No late homework will be accepted.

2. TA Information: The Teaching Assistant for this course is Brady Rocks ([email protected] ). He is at the Calculus Help desk (Lopata 323) 3-5pm Monday and Tuesday. There will be also a review session 5:30-7pm on every Thursday (except for the exam weeks) in Room 199 of Cupples I. For now, the review session will be like office hours, but if there is a certain topic you want to be reviewed, you can email Brady Rocks in advance.

3. Exams: There will be three evening exams during the semester, E1, E2, E3. There will also be a final F.
Solutions to the exams will be available the day after each exam.

Exam Date Location Time Solutions
E1 September 19 TBA 7-9PM Solutions
E2 October 17 TBA 7-9PM Solutions
E3 November 14 TBA 7-9PM Solutions
F December 13 TBA 3:30-5:30pm Solutions

Just before the exam, you can look up your exam room assignment on the web at this link: http://www.math.wustl.edu/seatlookup (the course number is 233 and the exam number for midterm one is 1)
You will be allowed to enter the exam room a few minutes before the starting time.

The three evening exams, E1, E2, E3, and the final exam F, each out of 100, will be combined in the following way to obtain an exam total grade S, out of 100:

S := (2E1 + 2E2 + 2E3 + 3F)/9

If your final grade F is larger than the minimum of E1, E2, E3, then the minimum of the midterm exams will be dropped out and will be replaced by the final exam score.

T := 0.85*S + 0.15*HW

For example, if a student obtains midterm exam scores of 86, 60, 74, a final exam score of 78, and a homework grade of 88 , then the 78 replaces the 60, and S is equal to 78.88.
The final grade will be 0.85*78.88 + 0.15*88 = 80.24.

Policy on missed exams. If you are unable to take one of the Exams E1, E2, or E3 for legitimate reasons (such as verified illness or serious family emergency), you will not be given a make-up exam. You first should talk to Dr. Blake Thornton and explain why you missed the exam if everything is in order, you will get an excused absence. Your grade for the missed exam will be calculated by a statistical procedure which uses your scores on the other taken exams including the Final. If you miss the Final exam, and for that receive an excused absence then you must take a make-up final exam (usually at the beginning of the spring semester).

1. Estimate the area of the region between (fleft( x ight) = - 2 + 4) the (x)-axis on (left[ <1,4> ight]) using (n = 6) and using,

1. the right end points of the subintervals for the height of the rectangles,
2. the left end points of the subintervals for the height of the rectangles and,
3. the midpoints of the subintervals for the height of the rectangles.

Show All Solutions Hide All Solutions

a The right end points of the subintervals for the height of the rectangles. Show Solution

The widths of each of the subintervals for this problem are,

We don’t need to actually graph the function to do this problem. It would probably help to have a number line showing subintervals however. Here is that number line.

In this case we’re going to be using right end points of each of these subintervals to determine the height of each of the rectangles.

The area between the function and the (x)-axis is then approximately,

As we found in the previous part the widths of each of the subintervals are (Delta x = frac<1><2>).

Here is a copy of the number line showing the subintervals to help with the problem.

In this case we’re going to be using left end points of each of these subintervals to determine the height of each of the rectangles.

The area between the function and the (x)-axis is then approximately,

As we found in the first part the widths of each of the subintervals are (Delta x = frac<1><2>).

Here is a copy of the number line showing the subintervals to help with the problem.

In this case we’re going to be using midpoints of each of these subintervals to determine the height of each of the rectangles. T he following sentences from the New York Times could have been written today in homage to the Common Core Standards Initiative, the recently adopted national standards for the teaching of mathematics and English-language arts in grades K–12.

“Instead of this old method, the educators would stress from the earliest grades the new concept of the unity of mathematics and an understanding of its structure, using techniques that have been developed since the turn of the century. . . . The new concepts must be taught in high school to prepare the students for the type of mathematics that they will find when they reach college.”

But the century in question here is the 20th, not the 21st. This article, written in 1961, is not about today’s Common Core, but about New Math, the program that was supposed to transform mathematics education by emphasizing concepts and theories rather than traditional computation. Instead, after a few short years of propagating ignorance of all things mathematical, New Math became the butt of jokes nationwide (the Peanuts comic strip took aim more than once) before it was unceremoniously abandoned.

Flash forward 50 years, and Common Core is today making the same promises: “The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”

But what makes us think Common Core will live up to its hype? And how is it substantially different from New Math, as well as subsequent math programs such as Sequential Math, Math A/B, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards? These have all failed America’s children — even though each program promised to transform them into young Einsteins and Aristotles.

The problem with Common Core is not that it provides standards, but that, despite its claims, there is a particular pedagogy that accompanies the standards. And this pedagogy is flawed, for, just as in New Math, from the youngest ages Common Core buries students in concepts at the expense of content.

Take, for example, my first-grade son’s Common Core math lesson in basic subtraction. Six- and seven-year-olds do not yet possess the ability to think abstractly their mathematics instruction, therefore, must employ concrete methodologies, explanations, and examples. But rather than, say, count on a number line or use objects, Common Core’s standards mandate teaching first-graders to “decompose” two-digit numbers in an effort to emphasize the concept of place value. Thus 13 – 4 is warped into 13 – 3 = 10 – 1 = 9. Decomposition is a useful skill for older children, but my first-grade son has no clue what it is about or how to do it. He can, however, memorize the answer to 13 – 4. But Common Core does not advocate that tried-and-true technique​ .

Common Core’s elevation of concept over computation continues in its place-value method for multiplying two-digit numbers, which is taught in fourth grade. Rather than multiply each digit of the number from right to left, Common Core requires students to multiply each place value so that they have to add four numbers, rather than two, as the final step in finding the product.

Common Core’s most distinctive feature is its insistence that “mathematically proficient students” express understanding of the underlying concepts behind math problems through verbal and written expression. No longer is it sufficient to solve a word problem or algebraic equation and “show your work” now the work is to be explained by way of written sentences.

I have seen this “writing imperative” first-hand in my sons’ first- and third-grade Common Core math classes. There is certainly space in their respective books for traditional computation, but the books devote enormous space to word problems that have to be answered verbally as well as numerically, some in sections called Write Math. The reason, we are told, is that the Common Core–driven state assessments will contain large numbers of word problems and spaces for students to explain their answers verbally. This prescription immediately dooms grammar-school students who have reading difficulties or are not fluent in English: The mathematical numbers that they could have grasped are now locked into sentences they cannot understand.

The most egregious manifestation of the “writing imperative” is the Four Corners and a Diamond graphic organizer that my sons’ school has implemented to help prepare for the writing portion of the state assessments. The “fourth corner” requires students to explain the problem and solution in multiple sentences. How all this writing helps them with math is yet to be demonstrated.

Hence Common Core looks terribly similar to the failed New Math program, which also emphasized “the why rather than the how, the fundamental concepts that unify the various specialties, from arithmetic to the calculus and beyond, rather than the mechanical manipulations and rule memorizations.” Common Core may not completely eschew the “how,” and it may not be obsessed with binary sets and matrices as New Math was, but it is likely to lose the “how” — the content — in its efforts to move the “why” — the concepts — into the foreground.

The problem is not that students, including those in the primary grades, should not be presented the basic concepts of mathematics — they should be. But there is a difference between learning basic concepts and expressing the intricacies of true mathematical proofs that Common Core desires. Mathematical concepts require a high aptitude for abstract thinking — a skill not possessed by young children and never attained by many. What will happen to students who already struggle with math when they not only are forced to explain what they do not understand, but are presented new material in abstract conceptual formats?

All students must learn to perform the basic mathematical operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in order to function well in society. Knowing why these operations work as they do is a great benefit, but it is not essential. And in mathematics, concepts are often grasped long after students have mastered content — not before.

In trying to learn both the “why” and the “how” in order to prepare for the state assessments, students will not fully grasp either: They will not receive the instructional time needed to learn how to do the operations because teachers will be forced to devote their precious few classroom minutes to explaining concepts, as the assessments require. The “how” of the basic operations, which need to be memorized and practiced over and over, will be insufficiently learned, since Common Core orders teachers to serve two masters.
