written by Larry Friesen and Anne Gillis
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.

This resource is part of a collection developed by the NSF-funded Mathematics Across the Community College Curriculum (MAC 3).
