Book DetailsAMS/MAA TextbooksVolume: 46; 2019; 557 ppMSC: Primary 08; 15; 60; 97
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.
Ancillaries:
ReadershipUndergraduates, including prospective teachers, and high school students interested in careers in STEM or finance.
