At present I introduce matrices as an array of numbers and then carry out various matrix operations. Is there a more tangible way of introducing this topic?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have thought of transformations but my experience with students has been that they get lost in the transformations and so give up on matrices.

These are weak engineering students who struggle and think of mathematics as too abtract.
