AMSER (the Applied Math and Science Education Repository) provides educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use.en-usealmasy@scout.wisc.eduealmasy@scout.wisc.eduFri, 18 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500http://www.rssboard.org/rss-2-0-1Adding Vectors
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=14431
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=14431This online exercise lets students practice vector addition. They choose the precision of the test by selecting a target size, then estimate the sum of the two vectors by dragging and dropping a third arrow. Points are awarded; a higher degree of precision scores more points.Wed, 1 Sep 2010 03:00:02 -0500Vectors
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9675
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9675This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, introduces vectors as an extension of numbers having both magnitude and direction. The initial motivation is to describe velocity but the material includes a general discussion of vector algebra and an application to forces for the inclined plane. The page contains links to a related lesson plan and further opportunities to explore vectors. This is part of the extensive web site "From Stargazers to Starships", that uses space exploration and space science to introduce topics in physics and astronomy. Translations in Spanish and French are available.Thu, 16 Apr 2009 03:00:01 -0500Vectors
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6557
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6557This lesson was created by Larry Friesen and Anne Gillis for Butler Community College. It will help physics and calculus students differentiate between the uses of vectors in mathematics vs. physics. This website provides two PDF documents that give detailed lessons about vectors, including an overview of terminology, sample problems, and an HTML worksheet is also provided. For educators or students, this site offers well laid-out lessons and/or practice with vectors.Fri, 18 Apr 2008 03:00:02 -0500Abstract Linear Spaces
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5447
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5447Linked essay covering the beginning of the vector concept and the move away from coordinate methods through the beginning of the 20th century with Peano, Hilbert, Schmidt and Banach, with 13 references (books/articles).Wed, 5 Dec 2007 03:00:01 -0600Maths Online Gallery
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4973
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4973Provided by the University of Vienna’s futureMedia initiative, the Maths Online Gallery consists of a large collection of extremely useful interactive learning units that demonstrate mathematical concepts. A large number of interactive modules exist in such areas as analytic geometry, trigonometric functions, probability and statistics, integration, Fourier series, as well as model-building and simulation. The gallery was started in 1998 and new learning units are being continually added. This is an especially good resource for college and university teachers looking for in-class interactive illustrations of a large array of basic and advanced mathematical concepts.Wed, 14 Nov 2007 03:00:01 -0600Multivariate Calculus With Maple
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4360
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4360An experiment in the use of the World Wide Web as a teaching aid for a course in multivariable calculus, using Maple as a symbolic calculator. Topics include Review of Calculus 1; Vector Geometry; Geometric Algebra; Vector Functions; Functions of Several Variables; Integration; Surface Area; and Vector Calculus.Fri, 3 Aug 2007 03:00:01 -0500Maths Help: Working with Vectors
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=678
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=678Analysis of a wide range of physical properties such as force, velocity, and acceleration, requires a firm understanding of the mathematics of vectors. This comprehensive Web site covers many aspects of vector algebra and trigonometry. The often-used dot product and cross product are defined, as well as vector representations of lines and planes. Illustrations are used to demonstrate vector analysis and its real-world applications. A few extra sections delve into related topics, including transformation between Cartesian and spherical coordinates. The material is mostly suitable for high school or college students who have taken pre-calculus.Tue, 8 Nov 2005 18:24:17 -0600
