# Vectors in Two or Three Dimensions (Modular Mathematics Series)

Vectors in 2 or three Dimensions presents an advent to vectors from their very fundamentals. the writer has approached the topic from a geometric perspective and even though functions to mechanics might be mentioned and strategies from linear algebra hired, it's the geometric view that is emphasized throughout.

Properties of vectors are at first brought sooner than relocating directly to vector algebra and transformation geometry. Vector calculus as a method of learning curves and surfaces in three dimensions and the concept that of isometry are brought later, supplying a stepping stone to extra complicated theories.

* Develops progressively, construction from fundamentals to the idea that of isometry and vector calculus
* Assumes almost no earlier knowledge
* a number of labored examples, routines and problem questions
