STEP 3 Matrices *New*


Matrices are a new addition to the 2019 STEP specification for papers 2 and 3. This module introduces you to the matrices topics included in the STEP 3 specification.
This STEP 3 module consists of some matrices questions from a range of sources, some topic notes and useful formulae, a "hints" document and a "solutions" document.

These questions are challenging, so don't worry if you get stuck. These STEP 3 modules assume that you have already begun to develop your problem-solving skills and approach to STEP questions by working on the Foundation modules and the STEP 2 modules.

About this assignment

There are a few (old!) Matrix STEP questions, which you can find on the STEP database.

Since there are very few STEP questions on matrices, the assignment here is a collection of old exam questions from a range of sources which have "STEP-like" qualities. Some will be shorter and easier than STEP questions, others longer and harder. They appear in chronological order rather than order of difficulty, so do not expect the earlier questions to be easier than the later ones.
