Course: College Algebra
Topic: Systems and Matrices
Subtopic: Matrix Applications

Overview

Applications of matrices, matrix algebra, and determinants are prevalent in STEM careers. Expose yourself to a wide variety of problems from the text and those presented in class.

Objectives

By the end of this topic you should know and be prepared to be tested on:

• 5.6.1 Solve a variety of real-life applications involving matrices, matrix algebra, and determinants

Terminology

Terms you should be able to define: message matrix, coding matrix, coded message matrix, formula for the area of a triangle using a determinant

Text Notes

We will work a variety of applications in class. Be sure that you are familliar with problems that include traffic flow, digital imaging, matrix multiplication and interpreting the results, coding/decoding messages using matrix inversion, and using a determinant to find area of triangle.
