The NICERC AMES Vector Introduction Kit is provided for use with the NICERC AMES (Advanced Math for Engineering and Science) Curriculum
Students study vectors by mapping out the way objects move from one location to another. As the objects move around a piece of grid paper, students record the start and end locations so that they can model the motion of the objects with vectors. Student find characteristics about each vector and perform operations with the vectors they modelled.
Materials include: Wind up toys, markers, and large grid paper.
