Description

In this course you learn everything you need to know to solve problems involving determinants. The course consists of theoretic as well as practice lectures. In the theoretic lectures I explain the statements of important theorems and give easy to understand examples. In practice lectures I go over solutions to exercises.

No preliminary knowledge beyond precalculus is assumed. Anyone who is interested in linear algebra are welcome to take the course.

However, the course is designed primarily for college students. It is great for those who'd like to get prepared ahead of live lectures, and those who need help with homework. You may also use this short course as a review before a college exam.

Like any other tutorial, this course is not a substitute to regular lectures. The goal of this tutorial is to help you learn how to solve problems in linear algebra rather than explain the proofs of theorems.

Who is the target audience?
  • college students who would like an efficient tutorial
  • college students who need help with homework
  • college students who need a short review before an exam
  • anyone interested in College Linear Algebra

I am a professional mathematician. As a mathematician I worked in US, Mexico, Japan, Canada and Germany. I am an author of 16 research papers published in internationally renowned journals.

I taught courses ranging from middle school to PhD level, including such high level courses as Topological Quantum Field Theory, Moduli spaces of Riemann curves, and Topological Surgery Theory.

What you may expect from me is a well structured course with clearly explained notions and theory.
