### Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra (LA) is the study of systems of equations. Specifically LA teaches an approach to solve complex, multivariable equations, starting with an approach called Gaussian elimination. There is a more abstract way of thinking about systems of equations embodied in the notion of vector spaces, which can be thought of as an extension of the euclidean plane into multi-dimensional spaces. LA has a lot of practical applications including statistics, computer science and probability, so a deep knowledge of LA can go a long way. Understanding LA requires some basic mathematical thinking (solving systems is nothing more than doing simple arithmetic and algebra) - past this there is a lot of abstract mathematics in thinking about how systems of equations take on a spatial meaning.

I've studied Linear Algebra formally (I took it in college my senior year and received an A in the course) and have been exposed to different applications of Linear Algebra in my MA studies at Columbia in various statistics and computer science courses. As a biochemistry student in college I used LA extensively to solve problems in quantum/physical chemistry.
