Linear Algebra

by Prof. Gilbert Strang

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to iTunes U collections.


This is a basic subject on matrix theory and linear algebra. Emphasis is given to topics that will be useful in other disciplines, including systems of equations, vector spaces, determinants, eigenvalues, similarity, and positive definite matrices. *Please note that Lecture 4 is unavailable in a higher quality format.

Simple amazing. Dr. Strang really cares. He is not here to show off nor is he trying to dazzle you with flashy math theory. You really learn why and where things came from and you start to understand all the little math tricks that you have been doing all these years. Must watch!!!!!

I Love Gilbert Strang!

I have watched 15 of these lectures and I love them! They are so clear and they make linear algebra so easy to understand. They're not flashy, just Gilbet Strang and a chalkboard, but the content is great. Also, his treatment is focused on applications and understanding, this isn't a theory course full of proofs.

Simply the best. Why do any other professors try?

This is simply the best series of linear algebra lectures that exist for public viewing.

I honestly believe that students across the country would understand linear algebra 100x better if their professors would just sit at the front of the room and press 'Play' on these lectures, one by one.

If you've taken a linear algebra class before, or are taking one now, and find yourself completely lost in the sea of terminology and mindless listing of rules and theorems, it's not you, it's the terrible way that linear algebra is generally taught. You will watch these videos, and think "Ohhh! Well why didn't they just say that in the first place!? It's so simple!"

Albert Einsein once said "You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother." Gilbert Strang could explain linear algebra to a group of second graders. The simplicity is really the beauty of these lectures. He has such a mastery on these topics that he can explain them in terms that anyone can understand.

If you've taken linear algebra before, watch these lectures and you'll see what I mean. If you haven't, watch these lectures and you'll never have to (well, except for credit).

If only he taught every math subject online...
