Slide 2

MATRIX: A rectangular arrangement of numbers in rows and columns.

The ORDER of a matrix is the number of the rows and columns.

The ENTRIES are the numbers in the matrix.

rows

columns

This order of this matrix is a 2 x 3.

Slide 4

To add two matrices, they must have the same order. To add, you simply add corresponding entries.

Slide 8

In matrix algebra, a real number is often called a SCALAR. To multiply a matrix by a scalar, you multiply each entry in the matrix by that scalar.
