Week 1

We only had one lecture but began our study of Chapter 2, Vector Algebra by studying the difference between a scalar (single number) and a vector (list of numbers).

Week 2

We will look at how to both visualise vectors and describe them algebraically. We will learn how to find the magnitude  and direction of a vector, add them and scalar multiply them. We will speak about displacement vectors and introduce the vector product known as the dot product.

Test 1

The test will probably be the Monday of Week 5: if progress with the vectors material is slow, we may push this out to Week 6. Official notice will be given in Week 3 (or Week 4 if necessary). There is a sample test in the notes.

Study

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
