Vector Independence, Span, Basis, and Dimension -- Lecture 9. Learn when vectors are independent or dependent, what a vector span is, what a basis is, and how to find the dimension.

- What does it mean for vectors to be independent?
- When are vectors dependent?
- What does it mean for vectors to span a space?
- What is a basis for a space?
- How do you find the dimension in linear algebra?

This video is a great video for learning about vector independence and dependence, and how to know whether vectors are independent or dependent. It also discusses what a vector span is, a basis, and how to find their dimension. A very diversified and full lesson. There is a small error in this video that is corrected in lecture 10.
