Professor Long's Vector Exercise Machine

This program gives unlimited practice in interpreting and drawing vectors and in interpreting simple coordinate systems.

It is interesting because, like an exam, it does not just keep giving the student more chances at the same problem. Nor it does keep plugging away at the same problem but with varying numbers.

Finally, it carves out a small domain, one that is a significant problem for underprepared students, and it sticks to it.

For the MAC, download two binary files:

For the PC, download one self-extracting binary file (it expands to an Executor and 50 very small files):
