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.
