Vector Direction

The Vector Direction Concept Builder is a tool that provides learners with opportunities to use their understanding of vector direction conventions to identify the direction of a vector. There are three different activities included in the Concept Builder. The first activity focuses on the counter-clockwise from east convention for vector direction. The second activity uses the convention of defining the direction as the angle of rotation that the vector makes with one of the two nearest axes. The third activity involves converting a vector direction given in one convention to another convention.  There are six questions in each level. Question-specific help is provided. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
