Solving Systems Using Matrices
Explore the concept of systems of equations in two variables and use matrices to solve them. Young mathematicians enter coefficients and constants into a matrix and then solve using row reduction. Instructions on how to use the shortcut of using inverse matrices to solve systems of equations are included.

Dilations with Matrices
Examine dilation with matrices with your class. Learners write a conjecture for how the scale factor determines the size of an image. They then use their conjecture to write a matrix multiplication problem for the illustrated triangle where the image is larger.

Working With Matrices
Learners solve problems using matrices. In this algebra lesson, pupils collect data and use matrices to organize their collected data. They interpret the data in the matrices and relate it to different careers, and use addition, subtraction and multiplication of matrices.

Two real-world activities to practice adding, subtracting and multiplying matrices to problem solve. Data from several Pro football quarterbacks is used in one activity to make some predictions based on their stats. Then the class takes a look at a school's cafeteria sales of onion rings, french fries and chocolate chip cookies.
