The goal is to land the boat on the island without hitting the walls.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 6,7,8,9,10,11,12Subject: MathematicsTitle: Sums of Vectors and Their Properties      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part 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.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 9,10,11,12Subject: MathematicsTitle: Learning about Properties of Vectors and Vector Sums Using Dynamic Software      Add Bookmark Description: In this two-lesson 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.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 9,10,11,12Subject: MathematicsTitle: Components of a Vector      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students manipulate a velocity vector to control the movement of an object in a gamelike setting.
