LAVA - Linear Algebra Visualization Assistant

LAVA - Linear Algebra Visualization Assistant

This interactive toolkit is designed to introduce concepts usually covered in a first course in linear algebra. The topics are presented in an informal, casual manner. The student is periodically asked questions designed to stimulate him or her to review previous material, reflect over material just presented, or to consider alternative approaches. The feedback from the questions is immediate and usually offers extended explantion tailored to address reason why an correct or incorrect answer was selected. Since abstract concepts in mathematics are often best understood by forming an analogy with something concrete, LAVA makes use of interactive applets designed to foster a geometrical understanding of the concepts it presents.
