This is the first lesson in the series on Matrices for the Year 11 General Maths course (VCE). I love matrices and this video shows you why. An introduction to the easiest topic in Mathematics looking at rows, columns, elements, what makes a matrix square and so much more. Lots of worked examples with easy to understand explanations makes this a video worth watching!
