These two worksheets give learners the chance for learners to explore the topic of vectors which gets introduced during the National 5 Maths course. Learners will need to have experience of vectors to be able to attempt these tasks. They are structured as an investigation where learners have to investigate the number of ‘routes’ from a start point to an endpoint, then to express these in terms of vectors, then to see what connections there are between the simplified paths.
This resource would be suitable for teachers, or potentially for learners who are already familiar with the topic to do self-study.
