This mini-course is intended for students who would like a refresher on the basics of linear algebra. The course attempts to provide the motivation for "why" linear algebra is important in addition to "what" linear algebra is.
Students will learn concepts in linear algebra by applying them in computer programs. At the end of the course, you will have coded your own personal library of linear algebra functions that you can use to solve real-world problems.
Learn the basic operations on vectors (one of the fundamental objects of study in linear algebra).,Code a library of functions to perform operations on vectors that you will use in later lessons.
Learn the geometric and algebraic interpretation of intersections of "flat" objects and how to solve real-world problems.,Write your own algorithm to find the intersections of sets of lines and planes.
