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

This learning activity will be used during a lesson on Scalar Multiplication. Students will explore how to multiply a scalar into matrices in order to produce new matrices. The teacher will use the Scalar Multiplication Lesson to cover the “I Do” and “We Do” portions of the lesson.

*This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.*

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

This learning activity will be used to introduce scalar multiplication and is intended for a Before Activity. The students will watch the Scalar Multiplication video to learn how to multiply a scalar into matrices. This activity will lead to learning how to add, subtract, and multiply scalar matrices with appropriate dimensions.
