Matrix arithmetic: addition, subtraction and scalar multiplication
Matrices I
Year 12
This video is the next in the series relating to Matrices as part of the Further Maths Units 3 and 4 course. In previous videos we've looked at the language of Matrices and how we can use them in real world situations. Now we move to the more mathematical side of Matrices where I show you how to add, subtract and multiply by a scalar. This all leads to the next video in the series where we multiply two matrices together. Lots of worked examples are provided with really easy to follow explanations.
