This course is developped in the framework of a research entitled "Students’ and Lecturers’ Perceptions about the Effectiveness and Challenges of Face-To-Face and Online Mathematics Instruction in Large-Scale Classes: The Case of the University of Yaoundé 1" founded by the Mastercard Foundation e-Learning Initiative.

This course serves as refresher for postgraduate students at AIMS. It could also be used by level 2 students from Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry or Biology departments.  It will focus on some main  concepts on matrices: the determinant, the inverse, the rank of a matrix. It has many applications, for example solving system of linear equations. Please take a few minutes to watch my welcome video.
