Abstract

The aim of this article is to share with the educational and scientific community, the usefulness of the new program called Matrix Calculator. That program has been used since the academic year 2011-2012, mainly in teaching Linear Algebra, in the first year of the different degrees of Tecnun, School of Engineering. (University of Navarra, in San Sebastián, Spain). It has been found that meets all expectations for student learning, while providing a great attraction for the study of Linear Algebra, mainly in its practical side. The application has been developed using MATLAB®. The Matrix Calculator consists of a separate set of more than 150 functions. These functions and the main program are accompanied by a simple pdf file with the user’s instructions and a set of solved examples.
