The main goal of Linear Algebra and its Applications is to help students master the basic concepts and skills they will use later in their careers. The topics here follow the recommendation of the Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group, which were based on a careful investigation of the real needs of the students and a consensus among professionals in many disciplines that use linear algebra. Hopefully this course will be one of the most useful and interesting mathematics classes taken by undergraduates.
Student resources includes selected material from the textbook and study guide, Getting Started with Technology, data sets, case studies and applications, and review materials.
