Basic Linear Algebra
by Andrew Baker
Publisher: University of Glasgow 2008
Number of pages: 73
Linear Algebra is one of the most important basic areas in Mathematics, having at least as great an impact as Calculus, and indeed it provides a significant part of the machinery required to generalise Calculus to vector-valued functions of many variables. These notes were originally written for a course at the University of Glasgow in the years 2006-7. They cover basic ideas and techniques of Linear Algebra that are applicable in many subjects including the physical and chemical sciences, statistics as well as other parts of mathematics.

This book is addressed primarely to second and third year college students who have already had a course in calculus and analytic geometry. Its aim is solely to learn the basic theory of linear algebra within a semester period.
by Kenneth Kuttler - The Saylor Foundation
Introduction to linear algebra where everything is done with the row reduced echelon form and specific algorithms. The notions of vector spaces and linear transformations are at the end. Intended for a first course in linear algebra.
by Edwin H. Connell
Covers abstract algebra in general, with the focus on linear algebra, intended for students in mathematics, physical sciences, and computer science. The presentation is compact, but still somewhat informal. The proofs of many theorems are omitted.
by Benjamin McKay - University College Cork
These notes are drawn from lectures given for a first year introduction to linear algebra. The prerequisites for this course are arithmetic and elementary algebra, and some comfort and facility with proofs, particularly using mathematical induction.
