Invitation to Linear Algebra is an informative, clearly written, flexible textbook for instructors and students.

Based on over 30 years of experience as a mathematics professor, the author invites students to develop a more informed understanding of complex algebraic concepts using innovative, easy-to-follow methods.

The book is organized into lessons rather than chapters. This limits the size of the mathematical morsels that students must digest, making it easier for instructors to budget class time.

Each definition is carefully explained with detailed proofs of key theorems, including motivation for each step. This makes the book more flexible, allowing instructors to choose material that reflects their and their students' interests.

A larger than normal amount of exercises illustrate how linear and nonlinear algebra apply in the students' areas of study.


The book's unique lesson format enables students to better understand algebraic concepts

Students will learn key elements of linear algebra in an enjoyable fashion

Large number of exercises illustrate the applications of the course material

Allows instructors to create a course around individual lessons

Detailed solutions and hints are provided to selected exercises
