# AS Maths Vectors This AS Maths course (based originally on the Edexcel specification) teaches the fundamentals of the Vectors topics taught during the first year of A-Level Maths. These topics include:

• Magnitude and Direction of Vectors
• Unit Vectors
• Addition, Subtraction and Scalar Multiplication of Vectors
• Position Vectors
• Vectors and Trigonometry

There are 17 lessons which include notes, examples, and videos for the above topics followed by an assignments section with a quiz and a written assignment to sit and mark yourself.

We recommend that you allow 3 hours for completion of the AS Maths Vectors course.

Mark the bottom of each lesson ‘complete’ when you feel happy that you have learned the content. Happy Studying!
