This edition strives to develop students' geometric intuition as a foundation for learning the concepts of span and linear independence. Applications are integrated throughout to illustrate the mathematics and to motivate the student. Numerical ideas and concepts using the computer are interspersed throughout the text; instructors can use these at their discretion. This textbook allows the instructor considerable flexibility to choose the applications and numerical topics to be covered according to his or her tastes and the students' needs.
