ab: This book argues that the teaching of elementary linear algebra can be made
more effective by emphasizing applications, exposition and pedagogy.
Relevant applications serve as motivation for all students and as
sources of stimulating and challenging problems. Effective exposition
that finds the right way to communicate concepts is especially
important in the teaching of linear algebra, often the first course in
which students come to grips with abstraction and complexity, and with
multiple representations of the same idea. Attention to pedagogy that
takes into account how students learn, technology, and new teaching
ideas such as cooperative learning can go a long way toward improving
the teaching of linear algebra.
