LINEAR ALGEBRA: Ideas and Applications
Richard C. Penney, Purdue University

Richard C. Penney was selected by his students at Purdue University as the Most Outstanding Teacher in the School of Science for 1995-1996, and as one of the top ten teachers in the School for Science for 1994-1995. His vision of mathematical truth and falsehood as something students can personally decide rather than as a body of facts to be blindly accepted has made linear algebra come alive for his students.

In LINEAR ALGEBRA: Ideas and Applications Penney shares his vision in an eloquent, new approach to teaching linear algebra. Penney's deep devotion both to educating students and to imparting the beauty and utility of the subject can be found on every page of this remarkable text!
