Matrix multiplication. Contains a function that will let you print the calculation steps of matrix multiplication, e.g. in the Advice.

• Question

First compute matrix times vector for specific vectors. Then determine domain and codomain and general formula for the matrix transformation defined by the matrix.

Randomising the number of rows in the matrix, m, makes the marking algorithm for part c) slightly complicated: it checks whether it should include the third gap or not depending on the variable m. For the correct distribution of marks, it is then necessary to do "you only get the marks if all gaps are correct". Otherwise the student would only get 2/3 marks when m=2, so the third gap doesn't appear.

• Question

Abstract linear combinations. "Surreptitious" preview of bases and spanning sets, but not explicitely mentioned. There is no randomisation because it is just an abstract question. For counter-examples, any valid counter-example is accepted.

• Question

This allows the student to input a linear system in augmented matrix form (max rows 5, but any number of variables). Then the student can decide to swap some rows, or multiply some rows, or add multiples of one row to other rows. The student only has to input what operation should be performed, and this is automatically applied to the system. This question has no marks and no feedback as it's just meant as a "calculator".

• Question

Checking whether a given set is a plane or not. Depends on whether two vectors are parallel or not. Then checking whether the plane goes through the origin. This is not always obvious from the presentation.

Not randomised because it's the same as in our workbook.

• Question

Students are given a diagram with 2 triangles. They are given 2 randomised lengths, and a randomised angle of depression.

They need to compute an angle by subtracting the angle of depression from 90°. Then they need to use the sine rule to calculate a second angle. Then they need to use the alternate angles on parallel lines theorem to work out a third angle. They use these to calculate a third angle, which they use in the right-angle triangle with the sine ratio to compute the third side. They then use the cos ratio to compute the length of the third side.

• Question

In this demo question, you can see either 2 or 3 gaps depending on the variable $m$, and the marking algorithm doesn't penalise for the empty third gap in cases when it is not shown.

Reason to use it: for vectors or matrices containing only numbers, one can easily use matrix entry to account for a random size of an answer. But this does not work for mathematical expressions. There we have to give each entry of the vector as a separate gap, which then becomes a problem when the size varies. This solves that problem. For this reason I've included two parts: one very simple one that just shows the phenomenon of variable number of gaps, and one which is more like why I  needed it.

Note that to resolve the fact that when $m=2$, the point for the third gap cannot be earned, I have made it so that the student only gets 0 or all points, when all shown gaps are correctly filled in.

Note the use of Ax[m-1] in the third gap "correct answer" of part b): if you use Ax, then it will throw an error when m=2, as then Ax won't have the correct size. So even though the marking algorithm will ignore it, the question would still not work.

Bonus demo if you look in the variables: A way to automatically generate the correct latex code for $\var{latexAx}$, since it's a variable size. I would usually  need that in the "Advice", i.e. solutions, rather than the question text.

• Question

A combination of tasks: checking which matrix products exist, calculating some of these products, calculating transpose matrices. Comparing product of transpose with transpose of product. Experiencing associativity of matrix multiplication. Not much randomisation, only in which matrix product is computed as second option.
