Suggest a linear algebra course for an art degree graduate

It’d be great if the course was somehow interactive- not just lectures. And free :slight_smile:

I don’t know about courses but I like interactive textbooks. They help you visualize the various vectors and such you learn about in linear algebra. For example: https://textbooks.math.gatech.edu/ila/ and this http://immersivemath.com/ila/index.html. Also on youtube, there is the channel 3Blue1Brown: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHLEWRxRGiM. He does great animations of various linear algebra concepts.

I hope this helps.

Do you know about the channel 3Blue1Brown on youtube? He gives away free knowledge wonderfully animated and understandable. For specific lecture regarding algebra you can check out Khan Academy, Rachel’s lectures are also excellent but a bit more advanced in my opinion. If you are looking for a book I can recommend https://mml-book.github.io/

Thanks! That’s just perfect !

3brown1b 's linear algebra course is ln not great. The only great is his multiple variable calculus.
To Jirosio:
If you want to help your linear algebra, you should take Khan academy and Gilbert Stranger’s videos on MIT open. The most viewed course on MIT open course is Gilbert Stranger’s Linear Algebra, and I think you understand why.

I see your point. However for a person starting out, the examples I gave help build intuition on vectors and matrices and linear algebra in general. After you are done with them, I believe it is time to move to Strang and others. especially working on your own computations.

Sorry. I was giving suggesting to JirosioKlement. Of course I am not good enough to give suggestions to someone who took a linear algebra.
