|Module 24 - Vectors|
|Introduction | Lesson 1 | Lesson 2 | Lesson 3 | Self-Test|
Many quantities, such as speed, mass, length and time, can be described completely by their magnitudes. However, both a magnitude and a direction are required to describe quantities like velocity, force and displacement. To completely describe the velocity of a moving object, you need not only the object's speed, but also its direction. Quantities that are described by both magnitude and direction are called vectors. In this module you will use the TI-89 to manipulate vectors, visualize vector-valued functions and model projectile motion.
