Vectors at a glance

 

A vector describes a movement from one point to another and has both a magnitude and a direction. 

 

We can use vector addition and subtraction to create a pathway from one point to another. Adding and subtracting vectors involves adding or subtracting the different components of a vector. We can also multiply a vector by a scalar to make it shorter or longer. If a scalar is negative it will reverse the direction of the vector but otherwise scalar multiples have no effect on the direction of a vector. 

 

We can calculate the magnitude of a vector using Pythagoras’ theorem and a unit vector has magnitude 1. 

 

Vector problems often involve midpoints of lines, fractions of lines and ratios between different parts of lines. We have to think carefully about how the information we are presented with applies to the problem and the clearest way to do this is usually to create a labelled diagram. 

 

 Looking forward, students can then progress to additional geometry worksheets, for example, an area of compound shapes worksheet or how to work out perimeter worksheet.
