Ready to have your students achieve a deeper and more structured view of vector mathematics that will improve their understanding and their ability to elaborate and apply the subject? Want a one-page organized presentation of each of the major units of vector mathematics that students can use to study for tests, and supplement their notes and reading? Want a compact tool that you, as physics teacher, can employ for creating lessons and assessments and to improve your holistic understanding of the subject?
This detailed concept map from noted physics instructor and author, Dr. Norman J. LaFave, represents the basic representations and properties of vector mathematics organized by:
- Concepts and definitions with symbols and SI units
- Principles and equations with important notes on subtle
- Important example solutions
- List of common student misconceptions
- Links to simulation applets
Each of these subtopics are connected by relationship arrows to delineate connections and causal relationships that display the holistic structure of the subject.
The file is delivered to you as a zip file containing the concept map as an html file (with support files) with active hyperlinks and as a static jpg image.
This product is one of six concept map packages covering all of the basic units of introductory physics. These packages may be employed for introductory, honors, AP, and college physics courses.
