Mechanics 1 (Edexcel) Revision

Mechanics 1 (Edexcel) Revision

Here is my power point trying to structure questions for M1 from past papers. I have split the paper into 6 sections and tried to group questions together. For use by giving to pupils and leaving them to it, or working through topics as a class. Every question from 2006-present. Also works extremely well on iPads.

Vector-product-cross-product

Vector-product-cross-product

This resource is suitable for 'A,' level students and provides a comprehensive explantion of the topic of 'Vector Cross Product.' In mathematics and vector algebra, the cross product or vector product (occasionally directed area product to emphasize the geometric significance) is a binary operation on two vectors in three-dimensional space (R3) and is denoted by the symbol ×. Given two linearly independent vectors a and b, the cross product, a × b, is a vector that is perpendicular to both a and b and therefore normal to the plane containing them.

Vector product (dot product)

Vector product (dot product)

This is a valuable resource for 'A,' level students. The lesson outlines, 'in three-dimensional space, the dot product contrasts with the cross product of two vectors, which produces a pseudovector as the result.' The dot product is directly related to the cosine of the angle between two vectors in Euclidean space of any number of dimensions

Vector Cross Product

Vector Cross Product

The lesson is intended for 'A,' level students and is intended to assist the students with the understanding of the vector cross product. In mathematics and vector calculus, the cross product or vector product is a binary operation on two vectors in three-dimensional space (R3) and is denoted by the symbol ×. Given two linearly independent vectors a and b, the cross product, a × b, is a vector that is perpendicular to both a and b and therefore normal to the plane containing them. It has many applications in mathematics.

Vector Proof

Vector Proof

Linked to the defining vectors activity, using the vectors defined in the image to prove standard results like ratios of line segments, whether points lie on straight lines, etc. For extra challenge take out the image with the pre-defined vectors and add the image from my vector definition activity so that pupils have to define the vectors before using them. Answers can be found on the prezi at link https://prezi.com/lenmenrpi1li/vector-proof/
