Kuttler, has been redesigned by the Lyryx editorial team w a first course in linear algebra for science and engineering students who have an understanding of basic algebra. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Text stays consistent throughout with definitions, solutions and responses. Read this book PDF. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
A First Course In Linear Algebra by David Easdown
The material is so fundamental in mathematics, cirst this book covers all the important topics. Daniel rated it it was amazing Sep 03, Linezr it increases the length of the text, it is done very well.
Only marked it as to-read Feb 29, Return to Book Page. The geometric interpretations of matrices and determinants are left for the chapters in the second half of the book; it makes for a very algebra-heavy first three chapters. For this particular subject, consistency in terminology is essential.

Kwang Kwang’z marked it as to-read Mar 07, Apollo added it Mar 06, The only thing ccourse might be considered an inconsistency is that Subspaces and presented in the text prior to vector spaces.
No trivia or quizzes yet. Dense paragraphs are mostly avoided and the text is broken up with examples, theorems, etc All major topics of linear algebra are available in detail, as well as proofs of important theorems.
I am also happy to say that the author sets a fine example of never abusing notation. An inclusion of socially conscious everyday problems may help students with the following question- when would I use this math in firsy life.
I would like to have all terminology hyperlinked to its definition box, but other than that, everything else is hyperlinked. Sally Zhu marked it as to-read Mar 17, For the book’s stated purpose of providing a first approach to linear algebra is met. Oliver marked it as to-read Mar 05, On the other hand, the sections on Linear Transformations and Eigenvalues are exactly what I would want to see in a Sophomore course that was designed more for mathematicians.
Ezsdown the following passage from an example on row reduction: The presentation of the topics in this book is thorough almost to a fault.
The length of individual sections is reasonable and topics are as self-contained as they can be given the nature of the subject.
The first three chapters Systems of Equations, Matrices, and Determinants are standard in any introductory Linear Algebra course, but the content of the remainder of such courses varies quite a bit.
Math has a great flexibility when it comes to being culturally relevant. The first fjrst in the first row, 2, is the first leading entry and it is in the first pivot position. Lijear to solve the problems are easy to follow and build upon as the topics gets harder.
For my students, textbook provides a foundation for the course. The section on abstract vector spaces I find somewhat deficient for a more theoretical course. I did not detect any inconsistency in the way that the material was coruse. The section on vectors is quite extensive, and would be excellent to use in a Freshman course that needed to introduce vectors very early for use in Engineering courses.
This book includes a lot of prose to motivate technical procedures. This book contains all of the material that would generally be covered in a Freshman or Sophomore Linear Algebra course. Refresh and try again. Comments Exercises are provided at the end of each major section, and I found them to be ample both in quantity and in terms of the level of difficulty.
