|Inspired by http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2992963, let's start a group to (re-)learn linear algebra.|
Who's in, and how shall we go about it? Something like a chapter every week or two, plus do the exercises?
Time to trade in a few hours of internet downtime and actually learn something.
Edit: here's what seems to be emerging. We'll read Strang's "Linear Algebra and its Applications" (ISBN 0030105676), one chapter every two weeks plus exercises. We'll stay here where the community is, unless proven otherwise. And... that's about it! I like systems with few rules.
The one sticking point is waiting for people to get the book. Anyone who, like me, just ordered a cheap copy on Abebooks (probably a re-import from India) is going to be blocked for a bit. I will post again when my copy arrives, and will email everyone who (a) has said on this page that they're in and (b) has an email address in their HN profile. Will that be suitable?
I'll check back this evening.
Applications are open for YC Summer 2019
