The aim of the course is to arrange data in tabular forms. The course is designed for use of mathematical concepts in problem solving through matrices. This course is designed to learn special techniques of matrices. Analyze the structure of real world problems and to plan solution strategies for matrices determinants. This course will provide a foundation of important mathematical ideas in particular arrangments. This focuses in making connections among the various conceptual and numerical formation.


Pre requisites for linear algebra include courses typically called Elementary Algebra and intermediate algebra as well as introductory to trigonometry.

Learning Outcomes:

Students will able to solve the system of equations in the form of matrices, by various techniques and by column row operation of matrices.
