**Title:** Sums of Vectors and Their Properties

**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.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] AM1 (9-12) 3: (+) Add vectors end-to-end, component-wise, 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. [N-VM4a] (Alabama)

**Title:** Learning about Properties of Vectors and Vector Sums Using Dynamic Software

**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.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] AM1 (9-12) 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 component-wise, including vectors in complex vector spaces.

**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.
