Course: Trigonometry
Topic: Vectors
Subtopic: Geometric Approach

Overview

This lesson introduces two-dimensional vectors from a geometric approach. Do lots of sketches! Try to imaging the vector operations geometrically, e.g. scalar multiplication as "stretching" or "shrinking" the vector.

Objectives

By the end of this topic you should know and be prepared to be tested on:

Terminology
