    we're learning vectors in anal math(precalc)
    well actually
    we just finished the chapter
    but i dont know a thing
    can anyone teach me (over the internet, if possible?)

    "Vectors" is quite a general term that encompasses lots of things. Be more specific.

    You're 15 and you're learning pre-calc?!?!?!
    That's very stereotypically asian of you.
    Wait...
    The only possible ways you could've done this is via public schools is
    A: You took a math course in the summer
    B: You took 2 math courses in grade 9
    C: You're taking 2 math courses in grade 10

    As for the help, I'm useless. =D

    I believe she is talking about the vectors in a plane, 2d or 3d. 2d shit is easy, but if it was 3d... good luck... For 2d, just remember to connect from tail to head all the time.

    You're learning vectors already!? [​IMG]

    PS: Am I the only one who wants to kick scubers head every time he uses the word "asian"?

    dildo.


    Anyway, tiny, listen they are simple if you know your trigonometry. When adding two vectors, you can find the resultant using either sine or cosine law. If it's multiplication, a non-vector resultant can be obtained with dot product, and a vector resultant is cross product. To get cross product though, you must break it down to i,j,k components and the cross multiply using matrix, which is kinda a pain in the ass..

    I think you're thinking about the more complex side of vectors. In England we learn about basic vectors in Year 10 (AB, length from point A to point E, etc.) tinymonkeyt by the looks of it is wanting to learn about basic vectors.

    I can help, although I kinda suck. I'll try though. And why is this testing? It should be in General OT, IMO.

    Yah but testing is for well... being stupid and testing stuff. Vectors should be in GOTC. Not everything is moved to testing from general, only the topics that are legit Testing material.

    Meh eh... whatever. Just that since testing is so busy, this will get bumped into the next page quickly and then no one will read it.

    Well, she did call it anal math. She is either below academic average and needs help in the simple stuff, or she is really doing vectors.

    well to clear things up
    math anal or anal math
    is math analysis
    which is just another term for precalc

    Again, she is doing pre-calc, which means it probably is the fucking vectors we are thinking of. Tiny, get to the fucking point next time, please! Vectors are a huge area of topics, you need to be more specific.
