Title: Learning about Properties of Vectors and Vector Sums Using Dynamic Software: Components of a Vector     
Description: This e-example from Illuminations illustrates how using a dynamic geometrical representation can help students develop an understanding of vectors and their properties. Students manipulate a velocity vector to control the movement of an object in a gamelike setting. In this part, Components of a Vector, students will develop an understanding that vectors are composed of both magnitude and direction. In the second part, Sums of Vectors and Their Properties, students extend their knowledge of number systems to the system of vectors. e-Math Investigations are selected e-examples from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics (PSSM). The e-examples are part of the electronic version of the PSSM document. Given their interactive nature and focused discussion tied to the PSSM document, the e-examples are natural companions to the i-Math investigations.
