Next Stop: The Matrix

So last Wednesday night we were brought into the lovely world of Matrices. Essentially this is a world I'd perfer to NEVER to visit again.

a rectangular table of elements (or entries), which may be numbers or, more generally, any abstract quantities that can be added and multiplied.

Matrices are used to describe linear equations, keep track of the coefficients of linear transformations and to record data that depend on multiple parameters.

WHAT? I will play the game and do some simple operations with them (addition, subtraction, multiplication) but that's where I STOP.

I was too busy NOT even trying to understand because it was:

a) dumb
b) too much
c) our instructor said if we "couldn't get it" NOT to worry about it because we could use any method we'd like to solve the problems
d) did you read what I just wrote?
e) & I kept waiting for Neo to sail through the room, long black coat floating behind him.

Matrix. Har har har! So, there we have it. Super genius, I AM NOT! I'm practical (and maybe just a bit bull-headed).
