Hi all, Lon Capa supports both Maxima and R. They can be used to do matrix operations. I can't find examples involving matrix, but you can go to https://loncapa.msu.edu/adm/help/Creating_Math_Response_Problems.hlp and http://www.lon-capa.org/documentation.html to see examples of using Maxima and R.
A couple years ago, I wanted to create problems involving regressions. I used R to do that, but it only worked if the data size was not too big. So I wrote my own perl functions to perform regressions. Regressions involve matrix inversion, which I used Cholesky decomposition since the matrix I worked with is symmetric and positive-definite.
