Course: Trigonometry
Topic: Vectors
Subtopic: Algebraic Approach

Overview

We previously introduced vectors geometrically. In this lesson we approach vectors algebraically, e.g. adding vectors is accomplished using their algebraic vector representations. There is more vector terminology to learn, and several theorems and formulas to apply.

Objectives

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

Terminology

Terms you should be able to define: unit vector, unit horizontal vector, unit vertical vector, basic unit vectors, orthogonal, normal vector, scalar product
