STEP 2 Vectors

Introduction

This module introduces you to STEP 2 questions which involve Vectors.

This STEP 2 module consists of 4 STEP questions, some topic notes and useful formulae, a "hints" sheet and a "solutions" booklet.

STEP questions are challenging, so don't worry if you get stuck. These STEP 2 modules assume that you have already begun to develop your problem-solving skills and approach to STEP questions by working on the Foundation modules.

About this assignment

There is very little theory behind STEP 2 vector questions, essentially all you need is knowledge of position vectors, the vector equation of a line and the scalar product. Vector questions are often considered to be particularly difficult, but don't let this put you off trying them!
