This article provides a geometric explanation of singular value decompositions and looks at some of the applications of the SVD.
A nice introduction to the singular value decomposition. Short paper starts with a geometric introduction to the svd for a 2 x 2 matrix and then shows a number of more general applications. The pages are very well done and should be easily understandable to undergraduates.
