Sami rated it liked it May 29, Theorems, examples and figures are clearly denoted throughout the textbook. All major topics of linear algebra are available in detail, as well as proofs of important theorems. No substantive errors were noted. Return to Book Page. I plan to propose that we adopt this text as our required text for our introductory linear algebra course.
Lists with This Book. Easdoen are plenty of very nice exercises. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I think that Kuttler has done an coursf job of keeping up with the current methods, but has not written in such a way as to make the text dependent on any particular numerical methods that are in vogue. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Consider the following passage from an example on row reduction: Thanks for telling us about the problem.
A First Course In Linear Algebra by David Easdown
The first three chapters Systems of Equations, Matrices, and Determinants are standard in any introductory Linear Algebra course, Lyryx develops and supports open texts, with editorial services to adapt the text for each particular course.
The proofs are all included and easy to read. It is somewhat unnatural to define the subspace of something that is not defined as yet, but sadly it has become somewhat commonplace to do things in this way. The book is written in a very conversational style, and for the most part this aids the presentation. A First Course In Line Aogebra book does not cover any topics about culture, race or ethnicities and is written in a respectful manner. Terminology is always an issue with students in this subject, but the author has used a color scheme to identify definition boxes in the text and differentiate them from examples, theorems, etc.
Few chapters that are interconnected may need extra care to rearrange since students would need to have some basic understand of the concept. The length of individual sections is reasonable and topics are as self-contained as they can be given the nature of the subject. Navigation in the book is very good. Linear Algebra texts often suffer from aggressive detail paid to procedure and computation.
Exercises are provided at the xlgebra of each major section, and I found them to be ample both in quantity and in terms of the level of difficulty.
Linea content is up-to-date and includes applications that are relevant to many of the students’ future plans. The section on abstract vector spaces I find somewhat deficient for a more theoretical course.

The rigor is appropriate and the author has gone to great lengths to cover the standard definitions, theorems, and examples that are at the heart of linear algebra.
The content is fully accurate. There are also plenty of thorough examples. The first few section of the book,are essential. This book contains all of the material that would generally be covered in a Freshman or Sophomore Linear Algebra course.
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 my students, textbook provides a foundation for the course.
The small number of figures in the text serve their purposes well. Ava Qin marked it as to-read Apr 07,
