I'm currently taking linear algebra and it has to be the worst math class EVER. It is extremely easy, but I find the lack of application discouraging. I really want to understand how the concepts arose and not simple memorize an algorithm to solve mindless operations, which are tedious. My professor is unhelpful and brushes off any discussion in class citing the lack of time to learn all the material. He also assumes to much, leaving little room for proofs.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If anyone would be kind enough to post the importance of Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, how they where developed, and possible applications for their use.

Any input is wecome.
