Well, the book by David C. Lay, "Linear Algebra" is good and accessible,
using graphical examples. But it costs forty bucks and is a university
textbook so you might have to visit your city's campus's bookstore for it.
And maybe win a lottery first. :) As for on the internet, I dunno, but try
a web search for matrices, linear algebra, etc. Also look at univwersity
home pages for this sort of thing. If you still can't find any such
resource, mail me in a few weeks and maybe in a few more weeks I can make
a website with an algebra tutorial. :)
