Les infos clés
This mini-course is intended for students who would like a refresher on the basics of linear algebra. The course attempts to provide the motivation for "why" linear algebra is important in addition to "what" linear algebra is. Students will learn concepts in linear algebra by applying them in computer programs. At the end of the course, you will have coded your own personal library of linear algebra functions that you can use to solve real-world problems.
Lesson 1: VectorsYou will begin by learning about the basic operations on vectors (one of the fundamental objects of study in linear algebra). You will code a library of functions to perform operations on vectors that you will use in later lessons.
Lesson 2: IntersectionsYou will learn the geometric and algebraic interpretation of intersections of "flat" objects such as lines and planes and how they are used to solve real-world problems. You will also write your own algorithm to find the intersections of sets of lines and planes.

Udacity est une entreprise fondé par Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, et Mike Sokolsky offrant cours en ligne ouvert et massif.
Selon Thrun, l'origine du nom Udacity vient de la volonté de l'entreprise d'être "audacieux pour vous, l'étudiant ". Bien que Udacity se concentrait à l'origine sur une offre de cours universitaires, la plateforme se concentre désormais plus sur de formations destinés aux professionnels.
