Linear Algebra and Geometry

Linear Algebra and Geometry is organized around carefully sequenced problems that help students build both the tools and the habits that provide a solid basis for further study in mathematics. Requiring only high school algebra, it uses elementary geometry to build the beautiful edifice of results and methods that make linear algebra such an important field. 

The materials in Linear Algebra and Geometry have been used, field tested, and refined for over two decades. It is aimed at preservice and practicing high school mathematics teachers and advanced high school students looking for an addition to or replacement for calculus. Secondary teachers will find the emphasis on developing effective habits of mind especially helpful. The book is written in a friendly, approachable voice and contains nearly a thousand problems. 

An instructor's manual for this title is available electronically to those instructors who have adopted the textbook for classroom use. Please send email to textbooks@ams.org for more information.
