For a sophomore-level course in Linear Algebra. Based on the recommendations of the LACSG, this introduction to linear algebra offers a matrix-oriented approach with more emphasis on problem solving and applications and less emphasis on abstraction than in a traditional course. Throughout the text, use of technology is encouraged. The focus is on matrix arithmetic, systems of linear equations, properties of Euclidean n-space, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and orthogonality. Although matrix-oriented, the text provides a solid coverage of vector spaces.
