Vector Calculus Independent Study Path

Unit 1: Vectors and Three Dimensional Geometry

As you probably know from high school, or from physics, vectors are mathematical objects we assign to things that have direction in addition to having magnitude. In this unit, we introduce the little pointy guys, and show most of the fun ways of combining them.

In this unit you should/will learn about:
