This book is intended as a supplement to and is compatible with any linear algebra text. It is assumed that the computer is equipped with the software package MATLAB, and the instructor is sufficiently conversant with MATLAB to answer questions and grade these projects.


Contains 34 linear algebra labs intended to be worked on independently by students on a computer.
