This page contains a worksheet on the topic of vectors for beginning physics students. It was developed as a companion to the lecture presentations by the same authors (see Related Items on this page for a link.) A primary goal of the full instructional unit is to help physics and calculus students differentiate the uses of vectors for physics vs. mathematics, a difficulty known as the "vector calculus gap". It may be freely downloaded and printed for classroom use.
