An introduction to the coordinate-free approach in basic finite-dimensional linear algebra. The reader should be already exposed to the elementary vector and matrix calculations. The author makes extensive use of the exterior product of vectors.

On the theoretical side, we deal with vector spaces, linear maps, and bilinear forms. On the practical side, the subject is really about one thing: matrices. This module is a mixture of abstract theory and concrete calculations with matrices.

These notes are about linear operators on Hilbert Spaces. The text is an attempt to provide a way to understand the ideas without the students already having the mathematical maturity that a good undergraduate analysis course could provide.
