This worksheet scaffolds the addition of column vectors through several sections, including worked examples throughout.
Section A begins the exercise by asking learners to with the column vector for the resultant of two vectors displayed on a grid.
Section B then asks leaners to draw and write the resultant vector for the sum of two column vectors.
Section C then askes learners to write the resultant vector for some column vector additions.
Section D then introduces multiples to give parallel vectors.
Section E leads learners through the subtraction of vectors by adding the negative vector.
Section F then provides some column vector subtractions.
Section G provides a mixture of vector additions and subtractions with multiples.
Finally, section H presents a “spot the mistake and correct” question.
