Today in class we introduced the concept of vectors. A vector, of course, is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction. But more importantly, vectors are an easy way to think about and solve problems that deal with multiple forces. We went through a PowerPoint (posted below) to introduce the concept, worked through an example problem together, and then let students practice on their own.
