*The following are my lecture notes on
the basics of vectors.*

*I've broken
these into 3 lectures. The first lecture deals with the basic geometry and the coordinatization of vectors to include
scalar multiplication, addition, and subtraction of vectors. This includes a discussion of the i-j form of a vector.*

*To see animated examples of the addition of vectors see the velocity vector applications
on the trigonometry applications page.*

*The second lecture deals exclusively with the dot product and the third deals
with the cross product.*
