A matrix in maths is a grid of values to put it simply. 4x4 matrices are used a lot in 3D programming to define vertex transformations like rotation, translation etc. They are also used to turn 3D World co-ordinates into 2D screen coordinates so triangles can be drawn to your display.

Good ol' Wikipedia has plenty on the subject
