I have been in contact with Frederick Koh from Whitegroupmaths.com who kindly agreed that he would write a guest post for the blog to promote what he has to offer - Tutoring in A level maths in Singapore.  So without further ado let me present you with the real content.I have been asked on numerous occasions by students to provide a short effective mathematical proof verifying the fact that obtaining the vector product of the normals characterising two separate non parallel planes in 3 dimensional Cartesian space produces the direction vector of the line arising from the intersection of the above mentioned planes.

Within the field of mathematics I handle every day linear algebra plays a vital role. Linear algebra is a field of mathematics that studies vectors and vector spaces. On common use of linear algebra is to solve a set of linear equations.The reason why I bring up the topic, is that I rediscovered a video version a MIT course in linear algebra taught by Gilbert Strang. I found the videos when I first studied to my exam in linear algebra.I have embedded the first video for your pleasure, and all the videos are linked in the post.
