  Final words

This is the first video in the series looking at Transition Matrices as part of the Year 12 General Maths (Units 3 and 4 VCE) course. I loved creating this video as it looks at what might happen if I give up teaching and start my own car business. I look at what it looks like to rent cars and how they change locations. We model this using a Transition Diagram and I show how this can be converted into a Transition Matrix. The video ends with some VCAA questions where I show how the theory is applied and how the questions might trick you!
