Lesson Plan: Transpose of a Matrix Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the transpose of a matrix and identify symmetric and skew-symmetric matrices.


Students will be able to

  • understand how the order of a matrix changes when we find its transpose,
  • find the transpose of matrices of varying sizes,
  • identify symmetric and skew-symmetric matrices,
  • perform matrix calculations involving transpose matrices.


Students should already be familiar with

  • adding and subtracting matrices,
  • scalar multiplication of matrices.


Students will not cover
