Introducing students to a subject that lies at the foundations of modern mathematics, physics, statistics, and many other disciplines, "Linear Algebra: A Geometric Approach" should appeal to science and engineering students as well as mathematics students making the transition to more abstract advanced courses. One of the main aims of this text - aside from presenting the standard computational aspects - is to help students learn to think about mathematical concepts and to write rigorous mathematical arguments. The authors do not presuppose any exposure to vectors or vector algebra.
