Gaussian Elimination Applet

Solve a system of three equations in three unknowns via row operations. Problems are generated by the applet. Easy entry of data for row operations. A list of operations performed is displayed. A system is generated by the applet. There is a "glitch"; the list of operations is not cleared when a new problem is initiated.

Using JavaScript, it generates a random nonsingular 3-by-3 linear system. The corresponidng augmented matrix is populated from the system, and the user is directed to apply Gauss-Jordan elimination to find the unique solution. The appication provides a means for the user to apply each of the three elementary row operations after providing the appropriate coefficients. The interface is attractive and easy to use.

Easy to use and enter data for row operations. Students cannot enter their own problem. There is a"glitch"; the list of operations is not cleared when a new problem is initiated.
