The Lyryx Interactive Linear Algebra website is a self-contained introductory course
in Linear Algebra and its Applications, suitable for undergraduate university level.
Lyryx provides the students with an individualized study resource, including tutorials,
exploration modules and self-assessment, which can be accessed from anywhere
through an internet connection.
Lyryx provides the instructor with a central support tool in helping students learn the
basics of the material. The instructor can register their courses, and use the labs for
course marks instead of having to create and mark their own. This saves instructors
and teaching assistants valuable time that can instead be used to help students
directly. The website can also be used in the classroom as a demonstration tool,
