9781616100537: Linear Algebra: (Textbook)

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.

From the Author:

For a quick look, I suggest the second chapter. The first chapter is necessarily computational but the second chapter shows more clearly what the book works on: bridging between lower-division mathematics with its reliance on explicitly-given algorithms, and upper division college mathematics with its emphasis on concepts and proof.

About the Author:

Jim Hefferon is an Associate Professor and Department Chair of the Mathematics Department at Saint Michael's College in Colchester, Vermont.

Book Description Orange Grove Texts Plus. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 449 pages. Dimensions: 10.9in. x 8.3in. x 1.2in.The coverage is standard: linear systems and Gauss method, vector spaces, linear maps and matrices, determinants, and eigenvectors and eigenvalues. Prerequisites: A semester of calculus. Students with three semesters of calculus can skip a few sections. Applications: Each chapter has three or four discussions of additional topics and applications. These are suitable for independent study or for small group work. What makes it different The approach is developmental. Although the presentation is focused on covering the requisite material by proving things, it does not start with an assumption that students are already able at abstract work. Instead, it proceeds with a great deal of motivation, many computational examples, and exercises that range from routine verifications to (a few) challenges. The goal is, in the context of developing the usual material of an undergraduate linear algebra course, to help raise the level of mathematical maturity of the class. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781616100537
