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.
