Students learn how to perform vector addition and subtraction using column notation. As learning progresses students begin to use vectors to define and prove geometrical properties
. Lesson comes with a Vectors worksheet.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to use vectors to describe the position of one object in respect of another.
- Most students should be able to use geometrical properties of parallelograms and trapezia to add and subtract given vectors.
- Some students should be able to prove the geometrical properties of shapes using vector addition.
