Quizz matrices --- Introduction ---

This module contains 17 training exercises on basic notions of matrices: multiplication, inverse, trace, rank. See Quizz determinant for similar exercises on the determinant.

Students may use them as a training tool for a better memorization of the lesson, while teachers may put them into a work sheet with activated time limit, so that proficiency can be tested.
