## MTTC Math (Secondary): Vectors, Matrices & Determinants - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you can review what you need to know about solving mathematical problems with vectors, matrices, linear systems and determinants for the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) Mathematics (Secondary) exam. This series of engaging lesson videos helps you brush up on:

• Operations on vectors in the coordinate plane
• Applications of the dot product of vectors
• Augmented matrices and matrix row operations
• Matrix notation, equal matrices and operations with matrices
• Inverse matrices and linear systems and Gaussian elimination
• Gauss-Jordan elimination with linear systems
• Inconsistent vs. dependent systems with Cramer's rule and Gaussian elimination
• Multiplicative inverses
• Linear equations with two and three variables
• Higher-order determinants

If, at any time, you become confused about any of the subjects in this chapter, you can contact our instructors for help. Reinforce your retention of these lessons by completing the assessment quizzes that accompany them. These assessments also allow you to determine what topics you don't understand. Return to the lesson videos to fortify your understanding of these areas with video tags and lesson transcripts.

### MTTC Math (Secondary): Vectors, Matrices & Determinants - Chapter Objectives

You will need to take the MTTC Mathematics (Secondary) as part of the licensure process for teaching secondary math in the state of Michigan. This certification exam is composed of 80 multiple-choice questions and administered in a either a computer or paper-based format.

The material covered by the exam is broken down into four domains including: Mathematical Processes and Number Concepts (making up 22% of the exam), Patterns, Algebraic Relationships and Functions (28%), Measurements and Geometry (22%) and Data Analysis, Statistics, Probability and Discrete Mathematics (28%). You can expect to see a few questions in all four of these domains about vectors, matrices and/or determinants. This chapter has been assembled to aid in your review of these topics so that you can improve your skills for test day.
