I am in the process of compiling a collection of exercises in Linear Algebra, (freshman course).
This is mainly just a series of examples, with a short theoretical introduction to each chapter with a few broad ideas of the concepts used in the problems.
My audience are students that prefers to learn from reading an example, and looking at previous tests/exams rather than reading the theory.
Are there any good tips about what a reader might prefer:
- Should the solutions appear directly after the problem statement, or in the end of the book?
- Would a reader like references to other literature, or is that just annoying?
- Any other tips and suggestions?
