What level is this course? Which book are you using? I know that Lay is a standard choice, as well as Anton.Im not sure if this is the right place for this, but after examining the other forums, I guess this would be the best place to put it. Im looking for a Linear algebra textbook, thats simple, and gives good examples. My current university uses a textbook that was made by a professor here, and is absolutely terrible. They change their variables every chapter, (example a matrix a in chapter 2 became a matrix t in chapter 3, where t(a) in two was a Lin transformation, makes it confusing) and there are hardly any examples or practice problems, not to mention the language they use to describe everything is worded very poorly. Worse yet is I have a Teaching assistant teaching the class, and he works with the text book in his hand up at the black board, copying word for word their definitions. I try to approach him out of class for help, but he isn't very helpful as he doesn't know the subject to well.
Any recommendations would be much appreciated, and again, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I'm desperate.
