With traditional linear algebra textbooks; the course is relatively easy for most of the students during the early stages as material is presented in a familiar; concrete setting. However; when abstract concepts are introduced; college students often hit a wall. Instructors seem to agree that certain concepts (such as spanning; linear independence; vector space; subspace; and linear transformations) are not easily understood and require time to assimilate. These concepts are fundamental to the study of linear algebra; so college students’ understanding of them is vital to mastering the subject. This etextbook; Linear Algebra and Its Applications 5th edition (PDF) makes these concepts more accessible by introducing them early in a familiar; concrete Rn setting; developing them gradually; and returning to them throughout the textbook so that when they are discussed in the abstract; all students are readily able to understand.
