Elementary Linear Algebra, Second Canadian Edition provides instructors with the mathematical rigor and content required in a university level mathematics course, while providing students with a modern approach, interesting applications, and clarity of explanation they require to be successful. In this second Canadian edition of Elementary Linear Algebra, the text has become even more engaging and readable for students, while continuing to be flexible for instructors.

- The addition of new Canadian and global applications to every single chapter in the book
- Eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices continue to be covered earlier in the text (in Chapter 4). These are treated once again in the context of linear transformations in Chapter 8.
- More challenging problems introduced at the end of each chapter
- The introduction of Vector spaces from a geometric point of view first
- Cengage Learning’s Enhanced WebAssign is the world's easiest-to-use homework system for math and science, providing the definitive solution to your homework and assessment needs. EWA offers interactive features that go far beyond simply duplicating text problems online. Students can watch solution videos, see problems solved step-by-step, and receive feedback as they complete their homework.
