Reviewing vectors

 

Vectors are central to many courses required in Engineering.  At the start of each semester the ULC offers a comprehensive vector review.  

If you're enrolled in a course that uses vectors and vector manipulation such as ECE 219, EMA 201, EMA 202, ME 240 or Physics 201, we provide an overview and plenty of example problems to ensure you know all you need to know about vectors. Whether you haven't spent a lot of time on vectors, don't remember certain aspects of vectors, or just want to be sure you understand all about vectors, these sessions will benefit you!  Topics covered include: vector addition, dot products, and cross products.  The law of sines and cosines and solving systems of equations will also be reviewed. If you miss the sessions, you can download the presentation and worksheets to review on your own.
