Matrix Methods I Test
About Solving Linear Systems using Matrix Methods I:

We previously learned how to solve a system of linear equations using graphing, substitution, and elimination. Now we will move on and learn how to perform this task using a matrix. A matrix is an ordered array of numbers. We can transform our matrix using row operations to gain a solution for our system.

Test Objectives:

•Demonstrate the ability to setup an augmented matrix

•Demonstrate the ability to place a matrix in row echelon form

•Demonstrate the ability to solve a linear system using matrix methods
