Description

This is the first video in this series of videos relating to Vectors - a part of the Year 12 Specialist Mathematics course. Understanding what a vector is will be vital to the rest of the course. Being specialist Mathematics we cover the basics and then get into the really interesting parts of the course such as linear dependence and independence. I cover the basics showing worked examples before finishing with some of the more "interesting" VCAA questions.
