## Reflection: Grade Book and Data Analysis What are Matrices? - Section 1: Bell Work

I have separated this unit into 2 different learning targets. As I looked over the standards it seems that we have 2 different major goals.

• The first goal deals with computational skills. This includes matrix addition, subtraction and multiplication along with scalar multiplication, calculating determinate of a matrix and finding the inverse.
• The second goal is applying matrices to solve problems. I focused on 2 applications finding area and solving systems of equations.

As always my students receive the learning targets along with how grades will be determined. Students receive a learning log to document where they are throughout the unit on the learning targets.
