Math SL Matrix Binomials Portfolio

        This portfolio will investigate the properties of matrix binomials in order to determine a general statement for Mn where n is a real number and an integer, and M is the 2image00.pngimage00.png matrix image28.pngimage28.png

n must also be greater than zero. It cannot equal zero because any matrix raised to the power of zero would equal I the identity matrix, and it cannot be less than zero, because that would be the same as one divided by the matrix raised to the power of n. Since it is not possible to divide an integer by a matrix, it is not possible to raise any matrix to a negative exponent and this n must be greater than zero. Therefore the expressions determined in this portfolio are valid for 2image36.pngimage36.pngmatrices, where the value of n is greater than zero

  2. Math Portfolio: trigonometry investigation (circle trig)

    As it can be seen in the diagram, all x and y values in Quadrant 3 are negative, though the r value remains positive as it is a radius of a circle, which cannot be negative. As all three formulas for calculating the sine, cosine and tangent values involve x and y, all are affected.

  1. Math Portfolio - SL type 1 - matrix binomials

    Knowing the dimensions of matrices is useful for the multiplication of matrices. Numbers in 'n' should be equal and numbers in 'm' and 'p' give the dimension of AB. Example: Since numbers in each column and in each row of matrices are the same, the dimension of AB will be.

    has been used throughout this portfolio to calculate the matrices and other calculations. Observing the above calculations, we can detect a certain pattern in determining the values, which gives us the general expression of A and B in terms of n as; An = and Bn = Proof: Taking n

    (We can also check this on a calculator). Now, using the expression, we find the value of X5 to be the same (proving the accuracy of our expression): X5=25-1 =24 =16 = We conclude that is indeed a valid expression.

    n Z+ (X + Y) = = 2(I) where I is the Identity matrix From this we can get the following general formula (X + Y)n = (2I)n To test the validity of this statement we will test out different values for n. n=1 (X + Y)n = (2I)n (X + Y)1 = (2I)1 X + Y = (2I)
