This product is designed for an introductory lesson with vectors.
***NOTE: As of 10/2/14 I have noticed the link for the NCTM illuminations site has changed. Please use the URL http://illuminations.nctm.org/Activity.aspx?id=3536 to access the Vector activity. I will be updating the activity sheet in the next few days.***
***UPDATE: I have changed the link on the activity sheet - please check it with the link above ending in 3536 before distributing to your students!****
Students work with vectors during a boat simulation. By choosing the magnitude and direction students steer the boat towards islands and other challenges. I have created this activity sheet with guiding questions and directions with screen shots so that the students can work at their own pace yet still accomplish what I want them to.
This activity sheet was designed as an assignment for my Universal Design for Learning master's level class. If you find any typos or have any suggestions please let me know!
