Linear Algebra Refresher Course
Skills Covered: Algebra, Python, Vectors, Intersections
ABOUT THIS COURSE
This free course is intended for students who would like a refresher in their knowledge of the basics of linear algebra. In addition to “what” linear algebra is, the course provides the motivation for “why” linear algebra is important.
Students will learn linear algebra concepts by applying them in computer programs. You will have coded your own personal library of linear algebra functions that you can use to solve real-world problems.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Basic operations on vectors (one of the fundamental objects of study in linear algebra).
- Code a library of functions to perform operations on vectors that you will use in later lessons.
- Geometric and algebraic interpretation of intersections of “flat” objects and how to solve real-world problems.
- Write your own algorithm to find the intersections of sets of lines and planes.
