The NICERC AMES Vector Equation Model Kit is provided for use with the NICERC AMES (Advanced Math for Engineering and Science) Curriculum
Students study lines in three dimensions by creating a manipulative that models the vector equation of a line. Students are given two points in order to create the manipulative. The badge reels serve as vectors that can move so that they can point to any point on the line segment they create.
Materials Include: Dowel rods, foam board, badge reels, and markers.
