8 ) (+) Multiply matrices by scalars to produce new matrices, e.g., as when all of the payoffs in a game are doubled. [N-VM7]

Students will use the Quizizz response system to review multiplying matrices by scalars to produce new matrices. This Scalar Multiplication of Matrices Review Quizizz game has twenty questions to test the understanding of multiplying matrices by scalars and is intended to be used as an after activity. Quizizz allows the teacher to conduct student-paced formative assessments- through quizzing, collaboration, peer-led discussions, and presentation of content in a fun and engaging way for students of all ages.

*This activity results from the ALEX Resource Development Summit.*

In Module 2, Topic A, students look at incidence relationships in networks and encode information about them via high-dimensional matrices. Questions on counting routes, the results of combining networks, payoffs, and other applications, provide context and use for matrix manipulations: matrix addition and subtraction, matrix product, and multiplication of matrices by scalars.

Module 2, Topic B explores the geometric context for higher-dimensional matrices. The geometric effect of matrix operations—matrix product, matrix sum, and scalar multiplication—are examined, and students come to see, geometrically, that matrix multiplication for square matrices is not a commutative operation, but that it still satisfies the associative and distributive properties. The geometric and arithmetic roles of the zero matrices and identity matrix are discussed, and students see that a multiplicative inverse to a square matrix exists precisely when the determinant of the matrix is non-zero.
