I don't think this goes under H/W questions, as it's not a specific question needing solving, or a proof, etc. Getting back to the point, anyone know any good websites or sources that give a good explanation of determinants? I mean what they do, why they do it, not just how to do it. I googled and got pretty boring stuff that tended to be either simply how to do them or just...well... lacking excitment. Thanks!
