## Description

For a sophomore-level course in Linear Algebra.

Based on the recommendations of the Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group, this introduction to linear algebra offers a matrix-oriented approach with more emphasis on problem solving and applications. 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
