Computers have revolutionized the way mathematics is taught today. The primary goal of the ATLAST Project is to encourage and facilitate the use software in teaching linear algebra.


Uses the MATLAB® Software Package for teaching linear algebra.
A collection of MATLAB routines (M-files) has been developed for use with this book.
Chapters are divided into two sections—
Shorter exercises.
Longer projects.
Exercises provide students with a means of visualizing major course concepts—
Linear systems, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and orthogonality.
