This is part of the QCE Year 12 syllabus for Specialist Maths. In this post, we will explore how to model real-life situations using matrices, including Dominance and Leslie.

- Leslie matrices may be used to model the age distribution of a population as well as population growth.
- Dominance matrices can be used to model network connections or modelling rankings from round-robin sporting competitions.
Let’s understand modelling with the Dominance Matrix.
