Unit 1: Vectors and spaces

About this unit

Vectors are used to represent many things around us: from forces like gravity, acceleration, friction, stress and strain on structures, to computer graphics used in almost all modern-day movies and video games. Vectors are an important concept, not just in math, but in physics, engineering, and computer graphics, so you're likely to see them again in other subjects.
