Stanford Math 51H Translated for the Mathematical Underdog: Midterm 1: The Linear Algebra Menace (Paperback)
Stanford's Math 51H is the first course of an infamous freshman honors series covering the fundamentals of Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra. This book provides a translation to those who lack the background (but have the passion) to master such a rigorous course. This includes summaries outlining each proof, math mantras to explain intuition, and bar-nalogies to convey many of the courses' simplest, yet most difficult, ideas. So sit back, relax, and enjoy one of the most epic courses devised by one of the most epic teachers. And hopefully, like going from sine of x over x to sinc, you will find that this guide is a continuous extension from high school to college mathematics.
