This is the final video looking and transition matrices and Leslie Matrices which forms part of the Year 12 VCE General Maths course at Units 3 and 4. This is brand new content to the VCE General Maths course (2023) and I have made an attempt to try and explain it around the Cambridge VCE Textbook. There are lots of worked examples to scaffold understanding of this new content.
