Pt. 5 Vectors: Unit vectors, Standard Vectors, and Linear Combinations

Here we will explore the concept of a Unit vector and some related thoughts. We will go deeper into what a vector is made of and practice an example of both creating a Unit vector and also a linear combination of i and j. As always, enjoy and feel free to give some feedback!

  1. To introduce this chapter and the first objective I will review with them the first method of representing a vector (arrow method) that we covered last chapter and I will ask the students for a way to represent a velocity vector of 10m/s north. This will serve as an introduction to the first property of vector diagrams. It will link the last unit with this unit with the importance of why we have these different terms such as scalars and vectors and how we use them.
