What is a vector? (TANTON Mathematics)


Publisher, TANTON Mathematics, Video, YouTube

People say that a vector is "a quantity with both magnitude and direction." What does that mean? 

This approach to vectors is too confusing. In this brief introduction allow me to demonstrate a more natural - and meaningful - approach to vectors. They're easy - and don't need to be made confusing.
