Additional Notes

The above course notes, assignments, and quizzes are for the Linear Algebra (SDSU Math 254) classes I teach at Torrey Pines High School. I wrote and modified these files over several semesters. Much of the work is my own; however, I borrowed several examples and diagrams from the textbooks* my classes used while I taught the course. These notes, assignments, and quizzes are free for use by my current and former students. If other Linear Algebra students and teachers find these notes useful, I would be happy to know that my work was helpful. - Abby Brown
