This resource is an interactive simulation that allows students to self-test their own knowledge of vector addition.  By clicking and dragging lines, students can draw two vectors and their sum, then check the answer against that of the applet.   A complete lesson plan is available through the Help menu, explaining both the tail-to-tip and parallelogram methods of vector addition.  

This item is part of a larger collection of simulation based physics modules sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).
