Here is where you'll find problem sets, solutions (in web-viewable and printable forms), and various other sorts of course materials. Printable files are in Adobe PDF format (get Acrobat Reader); when printing, be sure to

Linear algebra preliminaries

Logic and proof

Span, linear independence, and basis

Basis, coordinates, and the FTVS (plus column-vector methods)

Linear transformations, part 1: kernel, image, and from collections/matrices

Linear transformations, part 2: the Fundamental Theorem of Linear Transformations and change-of-basis
