The instructor suggested taking an intro course via Kahn Academy for your first exposure to linear algrebra.

My question is, how much of the Kahn Academy course do you need to build intuition for this course? There are 20 units for Algebra, do you just need the first one to get started?

There is a support ticket in progress to give a more comprehensive answer to this â€śwhat skills are requiredâ€ť page that Luis mentioned (currently the Resources content has gone missing).

Sorry, I havenâ€™t attended the Kahn Academy course, so I donâ€™t know its scope.

Luis mentions some basic algebra concepts (the equation of a straight line, etc).
