 Vectors This 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... http://www.mac3.matyc.org/vectors/vectors_main.html
 Vectors This 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.... http://www.phy6.org/stargaze/Svector.htm
 Adding Vectors This 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. http://web.mit.edu/emech/dontindex-build/java/vector/index.h...
