Sample Applications of Linear Algebra
This page contains links to a number of single-page handouts, one corresponding to the material for each of the 15 weeks of the semester. Each contains a sample of how the linear algebra material is used in other science and engineering disciplines; mainly they are taken (with permission) from the actual textbooks used in those higher courses at UIC.
These handouts were developed by Professor Steven Smith, with assistance from many faculty in other departments. The project was supported by a summer 1994 grant from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, through the Council for Effective Teaching and Learning.
