    Creativity with vector math?

    I need to do a basic review of the general vector concepts like cross and dot product, projections, there applications like work and torque, and volume of a parallelogram and all the basic properties of vectors. Basically I need to present the topic to the class and make my presentation entertaing and I have to engage the class or get the students involved in some way. I barely have any ideas, all i want to do is go up and talk but i need some kind of activity for the students... any suggestions??

    Why not present a difficult problem and solve it together as a class, that would engage everyone (providing your class are interested at good enough at the topic). If you need resources just ask.

    You can find a few question in searching this forum. I am not really sure what level of difficult you need. I attached a questions for a british special paper, tell me if it too easy or too hard and I'll try and find something more appropriate.

    Thx for the help.. but I thik id be looking for something a bit more challenging.
    I started looking for something that incorperates dot and cross product and projections, I was thinking maybe doing something like the volume of a prallelogram, the only problem is that it has already been done by the teacher.. do you have anything useful?
