### Reviews

Took the subject during Summer 2020. Probably the best math subject I've taken so far. Concepts are really interesting. Everything connects really neatly throughout the course. Theories are elegant and practical despite being abstract. Like all math subjects, practice is key - you'll be more than fine if you consistently put in the effort.

At the time, I didn't particularly enjoy this subject because I didn't see why any of the material would be useful later on. Man, was I wrong! The stuff on eigenvectors/eigenvalues of matrices is super useful for quantum mechanics, and even though it can be done with a computer, it's nice to understand what's going on behind the scenes. The linear regression material, once again, can be done by a computer, but it's nice to understand it, particularly when teaching students to draw lines of best fit. (P.S. I took this subject in semester 1, 2012, but that doesn't appear in the drop-down menu, so I'll select semester 1, 2017, which is the oldest option available.)

Pretty good maths subject, definitely prefer it over calculus. The calculations are easy but the concepts can be a bit abstract sometimes so itโs good to not hold on too tightly to what you think you know about maths. My lecturer Alex Ghitza was absolutely amazing, funny guy and his pure hatred for the lecture slides were the most iconic thing all semester.

Linear Algebra has to be one of the easiest subjects that i've done so far in uni! It was much more easier than calculus 2 in the sense that the questions from the assignments, tutesheets and final exam were pretty straightforward, given you get a good understanding of the topics being taught as the concepts are a bit abstract at times (by the time it gets to vector spaces that is). My lecturer/coordinator for the subject Dr. Christine Mangelsdorf was amazing and made the concepts and final exam so much easier. Just keep up to date with the tutesheets and problem booklet and you should be good for the exam!

very fun. personally, did not enjoy the the practical/lab bit but the content and the 4pm lecturer was really good. Tutes were very helpful too.

Nothing bad to say about this subject. Its extremely well taught and well structured. My lecturer (Christine Mangelsdorf) was fantastic! She explained everything clearly, I never felt super lost or behind. I found the content more interesting than calc1/2. If you have to do math for a computing major, definitely do linear algebra.

Linear Algebra is a rather abstract subject, which requires a deep understanding of its concepts in order to truly grasp its true nature and solve the challenging problems during the final exam. I did this subject during the summer of 2018 and Peter Forrester is a great lecturer! However, be prepared as he slips in a few extra materials not taught during the regular semesters. Be especially careful in basic matrix operations, since it's really easy to slip up and do careless mistakes in this subject!

I did it in the Summer of 2019, was fairly difficult in the beginning but is possible to get through if keep trying for the first few weeks.

Linear algebra was truly an interesting subject. There was a large focus on the applications of matrices and its links to solving many equations simultaneously as well as eigenvalues and eigenvectors. MATLAB is used to complement the theory. It took a while for the content to really sink in but overall, this subject sufficiently provides a foundation for further engineering studies. Strong arithmetic skills would be desirable before starting this subject but not required as you will develop this skill by the end of the subject. There are a few proving questions but the tricks can be picked up from the problem booklet. So in summary, to really do well in the subject, simply complete A LOT of past papers and the problem booklet.
