Midterm 1 problems from recent years.

Hints and typical solutions can be found here.

Midterm 2 problems with hints.

Some other midterm 2 problems.

Sample Jordan-block problems with detailed solutions.

Sample 12 Jordan-block problems with answers (not solutions!). I only included Jordan matrix, since there are infinitely many correct change-of-basis matrices. When you find your own change of basis matrix you can easily verify your solution by matrix multiplication.

You will find here, here,
here, here, here and also here solutions to some old final exams.

There are also sample exam-level sets of problems (some from old exams): set 1, set 2, set 3, set 4.

Below you will find some extra problems on:

Groups

Fields

Vector spaces

Bases and dimension

Matrices and systems of equations

The sets are not necessarily disjoint with tutorial problem sheets, but I have noticed that the symmetric difference between corresponding sets is usually nonempty.
