Vector Addition

The Vector Addition Interactive provides learners with a tool for visualizing the addition of vectors using either the head-to-tail method or the component method. Up to three vectors can be added and the resultant is drawn. The components of each vector can be toggled on and off; the magnitudes of the components are displayed as a numerical value. The Interactive can serve as a great tool for learning how vectors add together.
