Vector Addition: Does Order Matter?

The Vector Addition: Does Order Matter? Interactive allows a learner to explore whether changing the order in which four vectors are added affects the direction of the resultant. Learners are presented with four fixed size and direction vectors and tap or click on the vectors in different orders in order to determine the resultant. The order can be easily changed in order to answer the question.
