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.
