These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Add vectors diagrammatically and perform the algebraic operations of vector addition and multiplication by scalars, and understand their geometrical interpretations".

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Vector Cops Help the cops catch the robbers by finding the vectors that will end the chase.
- Vector Maze Use vectors to navigate through a maze by the shortest distance.
- Vectors An online exercise on addition and subtraction of vectors, multiplication of vectors by a scalar, and diagrammatic representations of vectors.

Here are some exam-style questions on this statement:

- "
*(a) Shape \(A\) is translated to shape \(B\) using the vector \( \begin{pmatrix}m\\n\\ \end{pmatrix}\). What are the values of \(m\) and \(n\)?*" ... more - "
*In the parallelogram OABC two of the sides can be represented by vectors \(a\) and \(c\).*" ... more - "
*(a) If A is the point (3,5) write down the position vector of A.*" ... more - "
*In the diagram above (not drawn to scale) \(X\) is the point on \(AB\) such that \(AX:XB = 9:4\).*" ... more - "
*Consider two perpendicular vectors \(p\) and \(q\).*" ... more - "
*George and Hugo like to fly model airplanes. On one day George's plane takes off from level ground and shortly after that Hugo's plane takes off.*" ... more - "
*The points A and B have coordinates \((3,-2,1)\) and \((4, 0, -1)\) respectively.*" ... more
