A First Course In Linear Algebra by David Easdown
This book does not cover any topics about culture, race or ethnicities and is written in a respectful manner. Each chapter begins with a list of student learning outcomes, and examples and diagrams are given throughout the text to reinforce ideas and provide guidance on how to approach various problems. Techniques to solve the problems are easy The clarity of the writing is what I find most appealing about this book.
Few chapters that are interconnected may need extra care to rearrange since students would need to have some basic understand of the concept. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Ln Elwazze rated it it was amazing Feb 07, I like very much the style of writing and even the formatting of headers and content titles.
Navigation in the book is very good. This book would be suitable for students’ first exposure to proofs.
For this particular subject, consistency in terminology is essential. The length of individual sections is reasonable and topics are as self-contained as they can be given the nature of the subject.
Despite its length, though, it is both extremely well-organized and easy to read. It would be easy to adapt to any introductory curriculum. Dense paragraphs are mostly avoided and the text is broken up with examples, theorems, etc University of Texas at Austin, Ph.
I am also happy to say that the author sets a fine example of never abusing notation. The text is designed in a modular fashion to maximize flexibility and facilitate adaptation to a given course outline and student profile.
The row reduced echelon form and its many consequences and applications are covered well in the first several chapters. There is some redundancy for the purposes of increasing modularity of the latter half of the book, but the consistency of the terminology and framework of the book is nonetheless first-rate.
The content is fully accurate. All major topics of linear algebra are available in detail, as well as proofs of important theorems.

Roya marked it as to-read Jun 05, No trivia or quizzes yet. However every topic in sections need not be assigned. The author has done an exceptional job providing a modern exposure to linear algebra that is accessible to students of all STEM disciplines. Comments Exercises are provided at the end of each major section, and I found them to be ample both in quantity and in terms of the level of difficulty. While it increases the length of the text, algebbra is done very well. There is no glossary, and the index, while short, seems to be comprehensive.

The book is sufficiently lniear for its purpose as a first course in the subject. I did like the fact that the section on vector spaces was written in a way to be included earlier if desired.
In addition, connections to topics coures in advanced courses are introduced. This text, originally by K. I have taught from the author’s related book, “Elementary Linear Algebra”, and I find the refinements here of the material to be a positive change in every regard. About the Book This text, originally by K. Ivaan Chan marked it as to-read Apr 06, Each topic comes in its proper place, but not in such a way as to detract from its adaptability.
A First Course Easdowm Line Linear Algebra texts often suffer from aggressive detail paid to procedure and computation. The fundamental courses of mathematics are not generally given to change, but Linear Algebra perhaps more than the rest does need to keep itself updated with the rapidly changing field of Numerical Analysis.
