Book Description:

This text provides the reader with a solid foundation of the fundamental operations and concepts of matrix algebra. The topics include systems of linear equations, matrix arithmetic, transpose, trace, determinant, eigenvalues/vectors, and linear transformations, focusing largely on transformations of the Cartesian plane.

The text is designed to be easily read, written in a casual style. Key concepts are explained, but rigorous proofs are omitted. Numerous examples are provided to illuminate new ideas and provide practice. Each section ends with exercises (with answers to odd questions appearing in the back).
