Linear algebra is one of the fundamental subjects of mathematics I sometimes feel that a solid grasp of linear algebra will get you more than halfway to understanding many (most?) mathematics colloquium-style talks. We will discuss vector spaces, linear dependence and independence, linear transformations, matrices, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvec- tors, and inner products. There is an additional purpose to the class besides learning linear al- gebra, however. This is the class in which you make the transition from computational mathematics (such as most of calculus) to abstract math- ematics. It is also the class in which you learn to write proofs. There is no way to accomplish these goals but by working with abstract concepts and engaging in proof-writing, so that we will do....
