Teaching Linear Algebra: Proceeding More Efficiently by Staying Comfortably within Z
Beaver, Scott
PRIMUS, v25 n7 p553-562 2015
For efficiency in a linear algebra course the instructor may wish to avoid the undue arithmetical distractions of rational arithmetic. In this paper we explore how to write fraction-free problems of various types including elimination, matrix inverses, orthogonality, and the (non-normalizing) Gram-Schmidt process.
