This course is meant to provide an solid introduction to the basic concept of linear equation systems, vectors, matrices,  least squares methods, and other basic topics in applied linear algebra. Our goal is to give the beginning student, with little or no prior exposure to linear algebra, a good grounding in the basic ideas, as well as an appreciation for how they are used in many applications, including for econometrics and finance.
