Title: Sums of Vectors and Their Properties
Description:
In this lesson, one of a multipart unit from Illuminations, students manipulate a velocity vector to control the movement of an object in a gamelike setting. In the process, they extend their knowledge of number systems to the system of vectors.
Standard(s): [MA2015] AM1 (912) 3: (+) Add vectors endtoend, componentwise, and by the parallelogram rule. Understand that the magnitude of a sum of two vectors is typically not the sum of the magnitudes. Find the dot product and the cross product of vectors. [NVM4a] (Alabama)

Title: Learning about Properties of Vectors and Vector Sums Using Dynamic Software
Description:
In this twolesson unit, from Illuminations, students manipulate a velocity vector to control the movement of an object in a gamelike setting. They develop an understanding that vectors are composed of both magnitude and direction, and extend their knowledge of number systems to the system of vectors.
Standard(s): [MA2015] AM1 (912) 5: (+) Understand vector subtraction v  w as v + (w), where (w) is the additive inverse of w, with the same magnitude as w and pointing in the opposite direction. Represent vector subtraction graphically by connecting the tips in the appropriate order, and perform vector subtraction componentwise, including vectors in complex vector spaces. [NVM4c] (Alabama)

Title: Vector Investigation: Boat to the Island
Description:
In this student interactive, from Illuminations, students '' drive'' a boat by adjusting the magnitude and direction of a velocity vector. The goal is to land the boat on the island without hitting the walls.
Standard(s): [MA2015] AM1 (912) 2: (+) Solve problems involving velocity and other quantities that can be represented by vectors, including navigation (e.g., airplane, aerospace, oceanic). [NVM3] (Alabama)
