Students will use templates to help them find the determinant of four 3x3 matrices. Then they are instructed to do some division resulting in the values for x, y, and z of a system of 3 equations with 3 unknowns.
Students are then given another system to repeat the procedure on. Teachers can either have students do the next problem on notebook paper, or make copies of a blank template (provided).
Includes a teacher note section on how to use the templates plus an answer key.
