Question about Linear Algebra

I have a question. Is calculus required to do linear algebra? Reason I'm asking is because I want to do linear algebra before any more advanced calculus (multivariable stuff), and I don't know if that will be the way to do.

You don't need multivariate calc to do linear algebra, but frankly multiariate calculus is easier.

Yeah... I didn't have calc 2 for almost 2 years before taking multivariate, and I didn't pay much attention and it was still easy...
