This book helps students to master the material of a standard US undergraduate
linear algebra course.
The material is standard in that the topics covered are Gaussian reduction,
vector spaces, linear maps, determinants, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Another
standard about the book is its audience: sophomores or juniors, usually
with a background of at least one semester of Calculus.
The help that it gives to students comes from taking a developmental approach
— this book’s presentation emphasizes motivation and naturalness, driven
home by a wide variety of examples and by extensive and careful exercises.
