Prerequisite: PreCalculus

Linear algebra is the study of linear systems of equations, vector spaces, and linear transformations. Solving systems of linear equations is a basic tool of many mathematical procedures used for solving problems in science and engineering. This is a one semester introductory course in linear algebra. This course includes, but is not limited to, the study of systems of linear equations, matrices, determinants, vectors and vector spaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and their applications.
In an increasingly complex world, mathematical thinking, understanding, and skill are more important than ever. This course will show students how to simplify many types of complex problems using matrix algebra and vector geometry. Students who wish to pursue careers in the sciences or engineering are often required to study linear algebra. This course provides a solid foundation for further study in mathematics, the sciences, and engineering.
