|Description||This is an activity I wrote for the Vector Addition sim. It was used by my regular physics classes. The students had to figure out what vectors to depict in the sim and find sums and angles. This lab did not deal with the x- and y-components of vectors, as we had yet to cover those. I used this lab on the same day I introduced adding vectors graphically.|
What do you think about this activity? How did you use it or change it for your class? Professionally constructive comments welcome.
