The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to linear algebra, a branch of mathematics dealing with matrices and vector spaces. This course describes the use of linear algebra as a compilation of diverse, but interrelated ideas that provide a way of analyzing and solving problems in many applied fields. Linear algebra has three sides: computational techniques, concepts, and applications. One of the goals of this course is to help you master all facets of the subject and see the interplay among them. The material presented in this course involves theorems, proofs, formulas, and computations of various kinds.

This graduate-level course is 6 This course is available to take individually or To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
