Introduction to Matrix Algebra is available as a MOOC now on Udemy. Of course, it is free! https://www.udemy.com/matrixalgebra/. You will have a lifetime access to 177 lectures, 14+ hours of high quality content, 10 textbook chapters complete with multiple choice questions and their complete solutions.

Learning Objectives are

- know vectors and their linear combinations and dot products
- know why we need matrix algebra and differentiate between various special matrices
- carry unary operations on matrices
- carry binary operations on matrices
- differentiate between inconsistent and consistent system of linear equations via finding rank of matrices
- differentiate between system of equations that have unique and infinite solutions
- use Gaussian elimination methods to find solution to a system of equations
- use LU decomposition to find solution to system of equations and know when to choose the method over Gaussain elimination
- use Gauss-Seidel method to solve a system of equations iteratively
- find quantitatively how adequate your solution is through the concept of condition numbers
- find eigenvectors and eigenvalues of a square matrix
