Ch 2: Vectors in Physics: Homeschool Curriculum

The Vectors in Physics unit of this High School Physics Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about vectors. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Physics Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about the types and characteristics of vectors. There is no faster or easier way to learn about vectors in physics. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about vector components, resolution, addition, and multiplication.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a Vectors in Physics unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Vectors in Physics Unit Objectives:

• Discuss types of vectors.
• Describe how to add, subtract and multiply vectors.
• Calculate the resultants of vectors.
• Use methods to find standard basis vectors.
• Perform vector operations using components.
• Determine the magnitude and direction of vectors.
• Understand the process of finding vector resolution.
• Calculate dot product.
• Learn how to find the cross product of two vectors.
