Linear maps on vector spaces are the basis for a large area of mathematics, in particular linear equations and linear differential equations, which form the basic language of the physical sciences.
This module restricts itself to the vector space R^n to build an intuitive understanding of the concepts of linear algebra and tools for calculations. We begin with the geometry of lines and planes in R^3 and R^n looking at the intuitive concept of vectors on the one hand, and with systems of linear equations on the other. This leads us to matrix algebra, and in particular the inversion of matrices.
