**Question about "Span"**

Given 3 vectors:

v1=(1,1,2)

v2=(1,0,1)

v3=(2,1,3)

To determine if they span R^3, I placed these 3 vectors in an augmented matrix. I found the determinant to be 0 which means that the 3 vectors do NOT span R^3. My question is, since v1,v2,v3 are linearly dependent, are they not supposed to span R^3?
