Instructional Ideas
  • Have the class members calculate the determinant of the matrix and its inverse to begin seeing a pattern
Classroom Considerations
  • The class should be familiar with the Pythagorean identity for trigonometry
  • Class members need to be able to solve systems of equations
  • The lesson is the 29th installment in a unit of 32
Pros
  • The answer key shows the systems of equations your class must solve
  • The teacher notes provide anticipated responses to discussion questions
Cons
  • Question one in the problem set asks for a description of a formula that has not be fully developed in the lesson
