Catherine, I wish to ask you a question. Who was the 
presenter at the NCTM  Conference?  Perhaps we could 
share the information with other teachers.

I cannot answer your question about web sites, books or 
other tapes; however, I  will share with you a song that I 
learned from a teacher in Washington, DC.    It is sung to 
the tune of "O, my darling Clementine."   It tells you how 
to  multiply matrices:

Row by column
Row by column
Multiply them line by line
Add them up to form a matrix
Now you're doing it just fine.

I understand what you mean about songs because my 
students never forget this  ditty.
