Trajectory - Angle Launched Projectiles
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewHorizontal and vertical speeds change as projectiles move through space. As part of a series on vectors and projectiles, scholars create vector diagrams to compare these speeds at various locations. They they determine the values for...
Trajectory - Horizontally Launched Projectiles
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewEveryone enjoys projectiles, and predicting where they land helps with future hands-on labs. Incorporating gravity into horizontal trajectories through both conceptual and mathematical practice helps scholars understand real-life...
Two-Dimensional Vectors: River Ferry and Current Vectors
11th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Fight against the current. Pupils explore the resulting path when they are crossing a river while being pushed downstream by the current. Using vector notation, learners express the speed and direction of a ferry. They finish by...
6 Sleeper-Agent Pathogens That Can Make You Sick
11 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
You may have heard that, if you've had chicken pox, the shingles virus is already inside you. The bad news? It may not be alone! Introduce your microbiology class to some of the trickiest pathogens we know of in the 151st video in an...
Abstract Vector Spaces | Essence of Linear Algebra, Chapter 11
17 mins 11th - Higher Ed
Take the principles of vectors and apply them to other things that act like vectors. The last video in the series of 15 introduces the more abstract aspects of linear algebra, making the connection back to the vector concepts discussed...
Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues | Essence of Linear Algebra, Chapter 10
17 mins 11th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Find vectors that stay on their spans after a linear transformation. The 14th video in the series of 15 introduces the concept of eigenvectors, vectors that are only scaled during a linear transformation. The presentation illustrates the...
Vectors, What Even Are They? | Essence of Linear Algebra, Chapter 1
10 mins 11th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Take a look at vectors as geometric objects and then as an algebraic concept. The second video in a series of 15 introduces the vector using three perspectives: the physics, computer science, and mathematical. The resource shows the...
Vector Multiplied by a Scalar: Boat Race
11th - Higher Ed CCSS: Designed
Find the right number of vectors to get to the finish line. Using a boat race scenario, pupils add multiples of the same vector together. The scholars use scalar multiplication to speed up the boats in an exciting race to the finish.
