# Vector Quantities

These lessons, with videos, examples and step-by-step solutions, help High School students recognize vector quantities as having both magnitude and direction. Represent vector quantities by directed line segments, and use appropriate symbols for vectors and their magnitudes (e.g., v, |v|, ||v||, v).
