Abstract : ONE PART OF A SERIES ON NOTATION, TERMINOLOGY, CONCEPTS AND COMPUTATIONAL PROCEDURES WHICH HAVE BEEN FOUND USEFUL IN THE APPLICATION OF MATRIX ALGEBRA TO MULTIVARIATE EXPERIMENTAL DESIGNS IN THE SOCIAL AND BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES IS PRESENTED. The presentation is directed to those with no more than a moderately good working knowledge of high school freshman algebra and introductory statistics. Traditional and rigorous mathematical treatment was not an objective. On the other hand, some of the material which has been found most useful in the formulation of experimental models and the analysis of data matrices is not readily available in the mathematical literature.
