Linear Algebra and Geometry is
organized around carefully sequenced problems that help students build
both the tools and the habits that provide a solid basis for further
study in mathematics. Requiring only high school algebra, it uses
elementary geometry to build the beautiful edifice of results and
methods that make linear algebra such an important field.

The materials in Linear Algebra and Geometry have been used, field
tested, and refined for over two decades. It is aimed at preservice
and practicing high school mathematics teachers and advanced high
school students looking for an addition to or replacement for
calculus. Secondary teachers will find the emphasis on developing
effective habits of mind especially helpful. The book is written in a
friendly, approachable voice and contains nearly a thousand problems.

An instructor's manual for this title is available electronically
to those instructors who have adopted the textbook for classroom use.
