Linear Algebra is a powerful tool that allows scientists to model physical phenomena and efficiently solve the systems of equations that arise from them. It is essential to almost every field of mathematics, such as geometry, topology, number theory, and abstract algebra. As such, it is not only computationally useful, with applications in data science, quantum mechanics, statistics, computer science, and all branches of engineering, but it also a great opportunity for the student to explore the beauty and elegance of mathematics.

Readers of Earth in Space and Time will become more critical interpreters of scientific ideas related to the Earth and will therefore make informed decisions in the future. The publication uses a “story book” format that starts at the beginning of everything and moves step-by-step to current times.

The publication includes online resource links, figures, photos, and charts.
Passport to College Success has had an amazing effect on my students by offering expanded definitions for each person of what it means to be in college.
