Overview

Continuing in our study of vectors, this lesson focuses on vector projections in two dimensions. Vector projections are used in applications and vector analysis in engineering, physics, and calculus. They are particularly useful to anaylze higher dimensions by projecting down into lower dimensions to simplify problems.
