Notice
I've been notified that Lamar University will be doing some network maintenance on the following days.
  • Sunday November 9th 2014 from 12:05 AM until 11:59 AM Central Daylight Time
  • Sunday November 16th 2014 from 4:0 AM until 11:59 AM Central Daylight Time

During these times the site will either be completely unavailable or you will receive an error when trying to access any of the notes and/or problem pages. I realize this is probably a bad time for many of you but I have no control over this kind of thing and there are really no good times for this to happen and they picked the time that would cause the least disruptions for the fewest people. I apologize for the inconvenience!

Paul.



Internet Explorer 10 & 11 Users : If you are using Internet Explorer 10 or Internet Explorer 11 then, in all likelihood, the equations on the pages are all shifted downward. To fix this you need to put your browser in Compatibility View for my site. Click here for instructions on how to do that. Alternatively, you can also view the pages in Chrome or Firefox as they should display properly in the latest versions of those browsers without any additional steps on your part.

This is a fairly short chapter.  We will be taking a brief look at vectors and some of their properties.  We will need some of this material in the next chapter and those of you heading on towards Calculus III will use a fair amount of this there as well.

 

Here is a list of topics in this chapter.

 

Vectors  The Basics  In this section we will introduce some of the basic concepts about vectors.

 

Vector Arithmetic  Here we will give the basic arithmetic operations for vectors.

 

Dot Product  We will discuss the dot product in this section as well as an application or two.

 

Cross Product  In this section we’ll discuss the cross product and see a quick application.
