Vectors (Revision World)

This site provides a quick revision of GCSE vectors including some aspects of higher level vectors

Topics: Vectors

Introduction to vectors (PDF) (Mathcentre)

This PDF provides a quick but comprehensive overview of much of the requirements for vectors at both foundation and higher level GCSE. Key points appear in boxes and there are some practice exercises towards the end.

Topics: Vectors

KS4 Vectors (Playback Schools)

This is a lovely example from teacher TV showing how vectors can be taught using practicals rather than text. The clip covers vector notation and resultant vectors. Some of the later work is higher level and involves sine rule.

Topics: Vectors

Vectors Higher (BBC Bitesize)

This is a nice introduction to vectors. It covers adding and subtracting vectors, and some aspects of vector notation, but not multiplying a vector by a scalar.

Topics: Vectors - introduction

Vector Addition (The Physics Classroom)

This is good if you only need a quick recap on vector addition. There are some clever extensions which link the work to Pythagoras and Trigonometry. The text also shows how this work links to physics, and applications.

Topics: Vectors = Column vectors, add and subtract vectors, vector x scalar
