This will provide step-by-step solutions for a variety of types of computational problems, including finding the reduced row echelon form, finding bases, computing determinants, and solving systems of equations.
These notes, written by Dr Paul Dawkins, are a small textbook for a linear algebra course at Lamar University. Many students sing their praises. Sometimes, less is more.

Mathematica Notebooks


How to get Mathematica

  • Go to room 204A in the library building (the office of Lauria) and sign the license agreement
  • You will get the software, which after installation will need a password. The password should arrive by email.

MathReader

  • If you only need to view Mathematica notebooks, like the quizzes, then you can do this with the free (and downloadable) software MathReader.
