Linear Algebra Teaching Methodology

Linear Algebra is a discipline within Higher Level Mathematics that is taught in the first year of the technical science careers. Unlike Higher Mathematics I and II, its learning requires a way of thinking that turns out to be new for the student. For example: a student may apply the derivation rules and derive correctly although s/he might not know the concept of derivative; however, if a student does not know the concept of image subspace of a linear application, s/he cannot manage to appropriate the procedure to find it. That is why, you need a different way to face the teaching of Linear Algebra to achieve good results in this process.
