In this project I hope that students will learn the basic skills required in Vector addition and subtraction. In addition, the website introduces methods for vector resolution using Flash animations. The website allows study of the theory, the maths and the everyday applications of vectors in everyday life. The website demonstrates how the maths and theory of vectors are combined to magnify forces in mechanical workshops by means of pulleys. This resource is appropriate to Leaving certificate Physics.

Curriculum Addressed

This site addresses the Vectors module in Leaving Certificate Physics. This module is common to ordinary and higher level.

What You Need
