<p>One of the challenges in Linear Algebra is in developing problems, projects, and exercises that are both larger dimensional and student-accessible. Indeed, round-off error, computational complexity, difficulty factoring characteristic polynomials of degree 3 or higher, and similar aspects often mean that any problems or applications of rank 3 or higher are approached solely via technology. </p>
<p>
However, that same technology can be used to create student-accessible problems and applications of ranks 4 or 5 or even higher, even allowing the creation -- if desired -- of a technology-free course featuring only hand-calculable problems. In this presentation, we present a freely downloadable Maple worksheet that produces these types of problems. Moreover, it can be used to create hand-calculable applications of arbitrarily large rank involving stochastic matrices, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, Leslie matrix models, the simplex method, and several others.</p>
<p>Two files are included. The first is LinearAlgebraExamples and includes all the example generators. The second is LinearAlgebraExamplesApp and is stripped to only the main component interface of the first. </p><img src="/view.aspx?si=129347/linearnew_sm.jpg" alt="Linear Algebra Example Generator" align="left"/><p>One of the challenges in Linear Algebra is in developing problems, projects, and exercises that are both larger dimensional and student-accessible.
