Background Tutorials

Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).

You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!

Add, subtract, and multiply matrices of appropriate dimensions.

Adding matrices is easier than you might think! Just find the corresponding positions in each matrix and add the elements in them! This tutorial can show you the entire process step-by-step.

Further Exploration

Add, subtract, and multiply matrices of appropriate dimensions.

Is the Inverse Property of Matrix Addition similar to the Inverse Property of Addition? Yes, it is! In fact, this tutorial uses the Inverse Property of Addition and shows how it can be expanded to include matrices!
