About the Course

This course is all about matrices, and concisely covers the linear algebra that an engineer should know. The mathematics in this course is presented at the level of an advanced high school student, but it is recommended that students take this course after completing a university-level single variable calculus course. There are no derivatives or integrals involved, but students are expected to have a basic level of mathematical maturity. Despite this, anyone interested in learning the basics of matrix algebra is welcome to join. The course consists of 38 concise lecture videos, each followed by a few problems to solve. After each major topic, there is a short practice quiz. Solutions to the problems and practice quizzes can be found in the instructor-provided lecture notes. The course spans four weeks, and at the end of each week, there is an assessed quiz. Download the lecture notes from the link And watch the promotional video from the link

With regards to my course and program, this was relevant. Although I was behind on some weeks, it was because some of the topics were not in concurrence with my course, but this course really helped.

This is a carefully sequenced, content-rich introduction to Matrices; beware skimming over details: eg. the use of matrix formalism to solve the least squares problem is little short of magic.

A very nice course, however in some topics if there were more examples it would have been more clear, Furthermore, it was very hard to finish the course in 4 weeks.

This course is not only very helpful for engineers but also helpful for under Graduate students.

I like "Gram-schmidt orthogonalization process" based lecture.

It is more suitable for a quick review. It might not be good for a complete beginner. Too many definitions, too few explanations. The space is very fast.

Good course, it was really informative, if some numerical methods were to be included it would enhance quality of course.

Thank you Professor Jeff Chasnov

I thought it would be helpful if we were given more practice problems to do on our own so that we understand the material better.

Good, but would have appreciated slides instead of just pdf, and tests are too much on manual calculus instead of thinking...

the more abstract side of algebra is important. without that side it is hard to know when to use the stuff you taught us

Course is very well explained, but it feels like one introductory lecture into the topic rather than the whole course.

I would have liked to see more proofs, mostly in week 3 on vector spaces. Otherwise, it was an excellent course.

First 2 weeks was clear as day, 2nd 2 weeks less so at times (for me). Thanks very much to Jeff & Coursera.

Very straightforward however still need clarifications with regard to solutions for problems/questions.

Quite technical. Not much about meanings behind the properties and values, neither about applications.
