preCalculus 2015-2016 January: Matrices and Linear Programming!

preCalculus 2015-2016 January

Matrices and Linear Programming!

We spent all of January on finding Points Of Intersection! We focused primarily on Linear Equations in 2D and 3D. As such, Elimination Method was King. So, we followed that with Augmented Matrices and Gauss-Jordan Elimination. Then we worked with Cramer's Rule. Finally we developed a Matrix Algebra and found we could solve Matrix Equations with an Inverse Matrix. 

Then we tackled nonLinear Equations with the Substitution Method and played with a simple case of John Nash's (RIP) Theorem: Linear Programming. Fun was had by all!

Number Sense and Units Mater!

NEW preCalculus + TI-84plusC

Well, that's all folks!
