A Modern IntroductionBook - 2003
In this innovative new Linear Algebra text, award-winning educator David Poole covers vectors and vector geometry first to enable students to visualize the mathematics while they are doing matrix operations. Rather than merely doing the calculations with no understanding of the mathematics, students will be able to visualize and understand the meaning of the calculations. By seeing the mathematics and understanding the underlying geometry, students will develop mathematical maturity and learn to think abstractly.
