LAFF started as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) created by Prof. Robert van de Geijn and Dr. Maggie Myers at The University of Texas at Austin, and launched on the edX platform in Spring 2014. It was funded in part by the University of Texas System and the National Science Foundation (grant ACI-1148125). Read some reviews of LAFF (the MOOC) on CourseTalk! The second offering of LAFF is currently in session.

This webpage makes the following materials available:


Linear Algebra: Foundations to Frontiers - Notes to LAFF With

An e-book (PDF) that integrates the materials for the 2014 offering of LAFF, including 250+ short videos, answers to exercises, browser-based activities, and programming exercises in Python. This artifact encompasses a full undergraduate introductory course on linear algebra and is used at the primary resource for such a course at UT-Austin.

(The notes for the edX Spring 2015 will be available early May.)


Linear Algebra: Foundations to Frontiers - Notes on Numerical Linear Algebra

An e-book (PDF) that integrates some (full lecture) videos with notes for a graduate level introduction on numerical linear algebra. This is a work in progress.
