## Matrices Overview - Chapter Summary

Get a refresher on the uses of matrices in mathematics with this chapter. Begin with an overview of what matrices are and how they are used in mathematical functions. Once you understand the basics, you can explore how the determinants of a matrix can be used to solve linear functions of different variables. Matrix recurrence relations and their usefulness in modeling populations and sequences is also explained. After completing this set of lessons, you'll be able to:

• Define a matrix and differentiate between types of matrices
• Solve inverse matrices
• Identify the multiplative inverse of a matrix equation
• Explain the properties of bianary and permutation matrices
• Discuss communication and dominance matrices
• Show how to generate sequences and model population using matrices
• Solve systems of linear equations using determinants

These lessons use either an engaging video or text format to break complex topics down into interesting, easy-to-understand material. The self-assessment quizzes, included with each lesson, help you identify any topics you found confusing or would like to know more about. The Dashboard feature of your account page tracks your progress in every lesson, no matter where you login.
