# An Intuitive Guide to Linear Algebra

Despite two linear algebra classes, my knowledge consisted of “Matrices, determinants, eigen something something”.

Why? Well, let’s try this course format:

- Name the course “Linear Algebra” but focus on things called matrices and vectors
- Label items with similar-looking letters (i/j), and even better, similar-looking-and-sounding ones (m/n)
- Teach concepts like Row/Column order with mnemonics instead of explaining the reasoning
- Favor abstract examples (2d vectors!
