A First Course in Linear Algebra
Overall, the text is very easy to navigate and visually attractive. About the Book This text, originally by K.
The content is up-to-date and includes applications that are relevant to lonear of the students’ future plans. Once the first 4 chapters are covered it is trivial to reorder the later sections to fit the objectives of your own course. This text covers all the material an instructor could want to include in alyebra introductory Linear Algebra course.
I think that Kuttler has done an excellent job of keeping up with the current methods, but has not written in such a way as to make the text dependent on any particular numerical methods that are in vogue. The applications are appropriate for the audience and the theory of linear algebra will not become obsolete in the next twenty years.
I did like the fact that the section on ewsdown spaces was written in a way to be included earlier if desired. For example, section 2.
A First Course In Linear Algebra : David Easdown :
The clarity of the writing is what I find most appealing about this book. The section on abstract vector spaces I find somewhat deficient for a more theoretical course. The book is sufficiently comprehensive for its purpose as a first course in the subject. The section on vectors is quite extensive, and would be excellent to use in a Freshman course that needed to introduce vectors There are also plenty of thorough examples.
Math has a great flexibility when it comes to being culturally relevant. Kuttler, has been redesigned by the Lyryx editorial team as a first course in linear algebra for science and engineering students who have an understanding of basic algebra.

Corey marked it as to-read Apr 04, Sally Zhu marked it as to-read Mar 17, Apollo added it Mar 06, An inclusion of socially conscious everyday problems may help students with the following question- when would I use this math in real life.
Comments I plan to propose that we adopt this text as our required text for our introductory linear algebra course. Dense paragraphs are mostly avoided and the text is broken up with examples, theorems, etc Text book can be taught using sections and subsections without creating much confusion. There is some redundancy for the purposes of increasing modularity of the latter dourse of the book, but the consistency of the terminology and framework of the book is nonetheless first-rate.
However, apgebra few hours of reading revealed no errors or inaccuracies. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
