|Title||Introduction to Vectors|
|Description||This activity is designed to be used by students who are not already familiar with vectors. I used it as a precursor to the graphic method os adding vectors and the mathematical method of adding vectors. I found that the students were much more compotent with visualizing what these vectors were and how they worked than in the past when the simulation was not used.|
