PrefacePreface

This is a set of class notes designed to guide an inquiry-based course on linear algebra. This is not a complete resource! Rather, this text is meant to accompany the book Introduction to Linear Algebra by Gilbert Strang. Industrious students might also use it for a self-study course.

An important feature of this text is the integration of the Sage Mathematical Software System. Students in this course will learn to use Sage to perform long tedious computations (which linear algebra has in spades) and create visualizations.
