Students add vectors using the head to tail method to determine the velocity of an airplane in reference to the ground. The velocity of the airplane in reference to the air, and the wind's velocity is given. Teachers may ask the students to work in groups and build their own arrows from cardboard and straws, draw the airplane and the angles in sticky notes and combine them to get the different situations presented, or new combinations. Every segment is one inch long.
