Study Guide

The Study Guide complements the text in several ways:

  1. It shows the students how to learn linear algebra, with suggestions for studying and discussions of the logical structure of various theorems and proofs.
  2. It supplies detailed solutions for every third odd-numbered problem (which includes most key exercises) and solutions to every odd0numered writing exercise for which the text's answer is only a "Hint".
  3. It provides a "lab manual" for using technology in the course, with additional help for [M] exercises and descriptions of appropriate commands for MATLAB, Maple, Mathematica, and graphic calculators, when those commands are first needed.
