Day 140: Matrix Applications
How can one use matrices in real life….let me count the ways!! On Tuesday we explored how matrices can be used to change the contrast of photos, determine ranking of candidates in an election and count paths between objects.
Yesterday we delve into counting paths and raising matrices to powers based on a lesson I found at Engage NY: NYS Common Core Mathematics Curriculum.
Today we looked at Markov chains and transition matrices. Lots of oooo’s and ahhhh’s. Love it when the math’s coolness shines through to the kids!
