Vector Applications Math Lib Activity
Students will practice solving vector application problems (specifically force and velocity) with this “Math Lib” Activity. This particular activity includes: (1) identify the magnitude or direction angle of a vector given in component form, (2) write a vector in component form given its magnitude and direction angle, (3) identify the horizontal or vertical component of a vector, and (4) find a resultant velocity or resultant force. Questions range in difficulty. The Law of Cosines is required on question 6.
The answer at each of the 10 stations will give them a piece to a story (who, doing what, with who, where, when, etc.) This is a much more fun approach to multiple choice, and the students adore reading the story to the class. They get very excited to see which of their teachers is the "star" of the story.
New: ALL slides are given in an editable format so you are free to personalize the story for your students. PowerPoint is required to edit. Only story elements can be changed, not the actual problems.
This activity works very well in conjunction with my Pre-Calculus Vectors Unit.
