Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.


Physics Help: Vector Direction

This short little web page provides 12 questions and 12 answers/solutions. In six questions, you are given a scale and a vector diagram and must determine its magnitude and direction. In the other six questions, you are given a vector's magnitude and direction and must draw it to scale using the indicated scale. Great follow-up.
