The way I was taught Linear Algebra, you didn't really need to know much of anything. The first class defined what a field is and what a vector space is (both through axioms) and we went from there.

However, I must say that Linear Algebra is a class that you don't understand the year you take it: You understand it a couple of years later if you end up using it for anything. In my case, I ended up using it a lot in numerical calculus and in understanding the dynamics of differential equations, and only then did I truly understand a lot of it.
