Very in-depth class for matrix algebra. I am a biochemistry student and have learned this in the past but re-taking this online course again has revamped my learning for linear algebra.

Very well-prepared and presented course on matrix/linear algebra operations, with emphasis on engineering considerations. Lecture notes with examples in PDF form are especially helpful.

This course is well designed, I enjoyed the first week's readiness a lot. It makes rethink some very important concepts in linear algebra without dig into a single question too deep as a pure math course. And I hope there will be more well-designed reading material to help to understand and practice all the contents especially in week 3,4 during which I almost begin to forget what I learned before.

Excellent course! I took this course because I was having trouble with my Linear Algebra course from University, it was exactly what I was looking for. My U teachers were so bad at teaching that I got stuck on all the abstract concepts, got so confused and started hating such a beautiful subject as Matrix Algebra. Thanks Jeff Chasnov!! Undoubtedly one of the best teachers I've ever had in my life.

Good course, which explains what are all methods Engineers need in detail. The course textbook provided is very useful throughout the course. The only problem with this course is mathematical way of handling i.e., Instructor doesn't discuss much of the intuition behind topics. I really enjoy the practice and graded exercises. Again thanks to the Instructor for providing excellent lecture notes.

Loved Dr. Chasnov's lectures. Very well-organized, succinct and clear. The Lightboard is a marvelous tool -- I had never seen one of these used before. This brief course is a fun and painless review of the highlights of linear algebra. Once you complete it, I recommend you find a source of linear algebra practice problems and solutions to hone your skills, such as one of Schaum's Outlines.

Excellent course, thanks so much! Really like the fact that the videos were backed by a comprehensive set lecture notes with problems AND solutions, including some proofs. This made consuming the concepts much easier. All in all a lot to swallow in this course, but great to get acquainted again (20+ years) with this subject matter. You have an excellent manner of teaching, Jeff. Thank you!

Really enjoyed prof Chasnov's enthusiasm. Videos + notes + practice questions really helped solidify the material. I've never taken linear algebra before so I found some topics more challenging than others but overall it was a really interesting and educating course. Would absolutely recommend to someone who needs linear algebra as a prerequisite or who is just interested in learning.

The course was informative and succinct. Jeff presents the material well with a clear path toward the concept in each module. There is exceptional use of lightboard without too much information per video. Exercises and quizzes test the material that is taught. The course teaches the general concepts and does not dwell too deep into theoretical or abstract ideas and proofs.

This course was excellent. Clearly explained and easy to follow. Relatively short videos with one idea in each, problems, and regular quizzes to check your progress. I was looking for a chance to review some of the mathematics that I completed a university many moons ago and this provided clear and easy to follow materials that should accessible to most. Great work!

This was an interesting course, and I learned a lot about matrix algebra. I also took another course of him, which is Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Ratio. This is the second course of professor Jeffrey Chasnov that I took, and I really like both of his courses. I hope that professor Jeffrey Chasnov will create some more interesting math courses in the future.

The professor Jeffrey R. Chasnov is very nice in teaching. He provided the best examples and applications for the concepts. He has nicely designed course with proper distribution of practice examples. He has explained the methods in easiest possible way and also taken the examples in the same way. Thank you professor Jeffrey R. Chasnov.

It was a wonderful course and helped me great deal to refresh my fundamental ideas about Vector Algebra. The course is very well designed and paced very well with interesting practice quizzes. I thoroughly enjoyed taking the course and would strongly recommend it for both new and advanced learners of the subject. Thank you.

I took this course as a refresher for my final year. Linear algebra wasn't my favorite subject in my freshman year since it involved a lot of tedious calculation but this course was light on me. Concept-oriented lessons with simple problems and challenging but not over the top quizzes. Thank you Prof. Chasnov !

This is an excellent course for engineers to begin with fundamental matrix algebra. The practice questions are an excellent addition to improve the understanding of the course. The 'chalk and board' method makes it easy to understand the progression of thought and makes the teaching move at a comfortable pace.

Hi Prof. Chasnov, I am a retired engineer and it was my great pleasure to follow your course. Although I did not do any tests I tried to understand the material you taught. I must say I liked enormously the way you teach, very clear and understandable.
I wish you all the best,

I want say about you Prof Jeffrey . You are great teacher and i really learned a lot from you. I also want say thanks to The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. If you have more courses then i want to learn from you in your other courses.
Again thanks alot

This online platform learning makes me learn the lessons easily. I can easily review again if I make mistakes/ got the wrong answer to the test. But the most exciting part is the moment that the instructor wrote. I love how dedicated he is, and that clear board makes me want it too. Thank you!

As a college math teacher, it was refreshing and a challenge at times. I was able to re-watch parts of the videos to get the notes that I missed writing. Since I didn't have access to the solutions to the problems, I had to check all of my answers to make sure that my results were correct.

Great Course, Can't complaint much but it lacks little bit of intuition , although it may be only to me. Not sure, If you have read matrix algebra in past and you think you know it. Chances are that still you will learn a lot. Great course , Recommended for everyone not just engineers

This course contents are very good. Prof. Jeff Chasnov gives clear explanation in concepts. The illustrative examples after each lecture video gives a lot of confidence in solving the weekly quizzes. In short to understand linear algebra I suggest this course is the best.

The content is very detailed, and the exercises are complementary to the lectures. But the teacher's intonation is too mild, which makes it difficult to concentrate. I hope the teaching skills could be improved. Overall, This is a good course and I really learned a lot.

This is an excellent matrix algebra course. In each lecture, the instructor presented the material very clearly. The material that he taught is quite useful for engineers and physical scientists. I also enjoyed his course on the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio.

Jeff Chasnov sir is really amazing. I really enjoyed the entire course. The way he taught would encourage anyone to enjoy so. I wish he were my professor. Having him in the regular classes would be super cool. A well organised teaching. I would happily rate 5 stars.

Thank you University of Hongkong and Thank you soooooo much Professor:) i had fun so much learning and refreshing some topics in Algebra. By the way, im not an engineer i am a teacher but one of a millions who dreamed to be but cannot because of financial problem.

I loved this course usually I am not the type of person that likes learning on the internet, but this was a super fun and interesting course.
If you are the kind of student that likes to see a board intead of a power point presentation this is the course for you
