This Saylor Foundation course introduces the student to the study of linear algebra, the theory and practice of analyzing linear relations and their behavior under linear transformations. Practically every modern technology relies on linear algebra: simplifying the computations required for internet searches, 3-D animation, coordination of safety systems, financial trading, air traffic control, and everything in between. Five major topics are addressed: linear systems of equations, vector spaces, matrices and linear transformations, determinants, similarity, and eigenvalues. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes.
