More Product Info


For combined differential equations and linear algebra courses teaching students who have successfully completed three semesters of calculus.


This complete introduction to both differential equations and linear algebra presents a carefully balanced and sound integration of the two topics. It promotes in-depth understanding rather than rote memorization, enabling students to fully comprehend abstract concepts and leave the course with a solid foundation in linear algebra. Flexible in format, it explains concepts clearly and logically with an abundance of examples and illustrations, without sacrificing level or rigor. A vast array of problems supports the material, with varying levels from which students/instructors can choose.

CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
