Book Description

Elementary Linear Algebra 10th edition gives an elementary treatment of linear algebra that is suitable for a first course for undergraduate students. The aim is to present the fundamentals of linear algebra in the clearest possible way; pedagogy is the main consideration. Calculus is not a prerequisite, but there are clearly labeled exercises and examples (which can be omitted without loss of continuity) for students who have studied calculus. Technology also is not required, but for those who would like to use MATLAB, Maple, or Mathematica, or calculators with linear algebra capabilities, exercises are included at the ends of chapters that allow for further exploration using those tools.

A concluding chapter covers twenty applications of linear algebra drawn from business, economics, physics, computer science, ecology, genetics, and other disciplines. The applications are independent and each includes a list of mathematical prerequisites.

3.0 out of 5 stars Elementary Linear Algebra: Applications Version July 1, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is fairly understandable, more so than most new math textbooks. Although it's the Applications Version, there are very few applications. There are many mistakes of the typo variety.

This doesn't sound like a good review but I would still recommend it for its purpose. Having seen so many horrible Algebra, Calculus and Differential Equations textbooks in the last few years, this is an improvement, it could have been much worse. They do need to proofread the text much more thoroughly for the next edition and if they're going to call it the Applications Version, they need to put some more applications in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book July 16, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great mathematics book. Appears to be written for non-math majors, no prerequisite knowledge required. Understandable without prior exposure to Calculus.

1.0 out of 5 stars clear as mud March 27, 2011
By Thomas
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
clear as mud, expensive as hell, the examples don't help you solve half the problems, most of the key proofs are missing, while other large chunks or print space is wasted on useless history lessons about mathematicians.

but... you'll buy it anyway... because you need to, as a student you don't have a choice.
if you're a professor considering this book, I'd consider something better, and cheaper.

As a student though, I didn't learn one thing from this book or my instructor. This book presented the problems and the need to know something, Google, wikipedia, and youtube provided the education.

Ironic how the people who get my money aren't the ones that give me the knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed September 19, 2013
By J_ruiz
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It came in a timely fashion, despite me purchasing it after my class had already started...Brand-spanking new condition and the packaging was easy to take apart and fit perfectly around the book itself. AWESOME.
