For introductory sophomore-level courses in Linear Algebra or Matrix Theory.
This text presents the basic ideas of linear algebra in a manner that offers students a fine balance between abstraction/theory and computational skills. The emphasis is on not just teaching how to read a proof but also on how to write a proof.
Strong pedagogical framework.
Provides students with a strong understanding by gradually introducing topics that connect abstract ideas to concrete foundations.
General level of applications–Presents applications that are suited to a more general audience, rather than for a strongly science-oriented one.
Enables instructors to use this text for a greater variety of class levels.
Comprehensive supplements–Includes a Student Solutions Manual, an Instructor's Solutions Manual, and a Companion Website.
Gives both students and instructors valuable course support.
Matrix multiplication in a separate section.
