Norman/Wolczuk’s An Introduction to Linear Algebra for Science and Engineering has been widely respected for its unique approach, which helps students understand and apply theory and concepts by combining theory with computations and slowly bringing students to the difficult abstract concepts. This approach includes an early treatment of vector spaces and complex topics in a simpler, geometric context. An Introduction to Linear Algebra for Science and Engineering promotes advanced thinking and understanding by encouraging students to make connections between previously learned and new concepts and demonstrates the importance of each topic through applications.

About the Author:

Daniel Norman, born 1938.  B.A. (University of Toronto), M.A.(Queen's University at Kingston), Ph.D. (University of London, King's College). His Ph.D. thesis was in General Relativity.  Appointed to the Department of Mathematics at Queen's in 1965, he remained interested in applied mathematics. He taught undergraduate courses at all levels, mostly calculus, linear algebra and differential equations, to engineering students.  After teaching introductory linear algebra for several years, he was frustrated with texts then available for those students so he began writing Introduction to Linear Algebra for engineering students in 1989.  Versions of it were used in the large first year engineering class from 1991 until its publication as a book in 1995 and it continued to be used until he retired from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queen's, as an Associate Professor, in 2001.

 

Dan Wolczuk has been lecturing at the University of Waterloo since 2004.  Since he teaches nine courses a year, mostly first and second year linear algebra and calculus courses, he has spent considerable effort researching how to teach these courses more effectively. Dan is very passionate about teaching and spends much of his spare time teaching mathematics to gifted elementary and high school students.
