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.
