7.1 Learning about Properties of Vectors and Vector Sums Using Dynamic Software

This example illustrates how using a dynamic geometrical representation can help students develop an understanding of vectors and their properties, as described in the Number and Operations Standard.

Students manipulate a velocity vector to control the movement of an object in a gamelike setting.
 

7-1_ComponentsVector  Components of a Vector  (7.1.1)

Students develop an understanding that vectors are composed of both magnitude and direction.
7-1_SumsVectors  Sums of Vectors and Their Properties  (7.1.2)

Students extend their knowledge of number systems to the system of vectors.
