Description: 
This takes all the arithmetic out of matrix problems. With this web site, the student types in their matrix, and then gives the computer the the rowechlon commands  no silly mistakes. This helps the student learn the concept with out being held down with calculations. It also has the ability to complety transform a matrix into rref while showing all the steps. A definite must see for any teacher.... It also works for inconsistent and dependent systems!

Comment:  Impressive free tool to take the drudgery of computation out of the linear algebra. It doesn't just do the computation for you either, it has a nice use of color to help instruct on how the computations are created.
