spreadsheet that can be used with Excel to
pivot matrices (in xls format) (I recommend
right-clicking on this link and saving it to your computer's hard
drive. Then, navigate to the directory where you saved it and
double click on ExcelPivot.xls). If this spreadsheet won't work
your computer, click
instructions that might help you fix the problem.
A Linear Algebra toolkit that can perform row operations on a matrix and obtain its reduced row echelon form
**Current and future Master's level Math courses offered at Salem State University
Program "Rowop" with prompts to perform elementary row operations on
a matrix [A] on TI calculators:
TI 82 binary version (397 bytes); TI 82 text listing of program
TI 83 binary version (396 bytes); TI 83 text listing of program
TI 85 binary version (522 bytes); TI 85 text listing of program
Note: In the text listings, \->\ represents
STO-> key in the left column.
Note: To use the binary version of the program, you will first need to download it. To download it, right click the appropriate link and choose
"Save target as..." with Internet Explorer or "Save link as..." with Netscape. The downloaded file should have the indicated length. With some versions of Netscape, it may be corrupted and have a different length. In that case, please use Internet Explorer or click here to find another link that might enable you to download this file properly. If you have problems following these instructions, please send e-mail to email@example.com).
After being downloaded, the binary version of the program may be loaded directly into the TI calculator of the corresponding type, IF you have a "TI-GRAPH LINK" cable to connect your PC and the calculator and you use the appropriate "TI-GRAPH LINK" software available for free download at http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/sectionHome/download.html. There are "TI-GRAPH LINK" cables connected to several of the computers in the Math Lab which you may use in the Math Lab. The "TI-GRAPH LINK" software is already installed on some of the computers in the Math Lab. If you have trouble finding it, please ask for help.
A script (rowop.m) which you may use with
the Math Lab) to pivot matrices. (This may be useful when
Gaussian elimination or when using the simplex method).
Click here for instructions on how to
and use the script rowop.m, using the previous link.
A spreadsheet, rowop.xls, that will
Gaussian elimination on most matrices up to 3x4
(To use this, you might need to (1) save rowop.xls to your hard disk, by right clicking and using "Save target as" with Internet Explorer or using "Save link target as" with Netscape and then (2) double click on rowop.xls. After the first time, only step (2) will need to be done.)
