Geometry and Matrix Groups in Linear Algebra 
Click to access this paper:

We present several activities using the software Derive to integrate geometric and group theoretic notions into a linear algebra course via matrix actions on vector spaces and matrix multiplication. These activities provide additional geometric content to the mathematics major and ease the transition to more abstract courses in algebra.
