# Linear Algebra Video Lectures

In Fall 2020, I recorded a series of video lectures on Linear Algebra, to accompany the course Math 214 (Applied Linear Algebra) at the University of Michigan as it went online thanks to COVID-19. I revised the lectures during 2021, with a great deal of help from Michigan student Zhixin Mo, and am now releasing them onto the open internet. I hope these videos will be of use to people studying Linear Algebra, at Michigan and elsewhere.

As a note: This was a 13 week course: The weeks between Week 4 and 5, between Weeks 7 and 8, and after Week 10, were used for review and discussion and had no videos associated to them. Doing it in 10 weeks with no breaks would probably be a bad idea.

Note: This webpage has a second home now on the Canvas page for Math 214. This is in response to UMich requirements that course materials be hosted within Canvas. That page also reorders the videos slightly, to more closely match how they are used in current teaching. I'll try to maintain both pages, but it is possible that they will get further out of sync in time. I plan to keep the videos and slides available to the public indefinitely.
