"Title" Tutorial Summary :

Vectors are common quantities that are used in mathematics and in other field of studies. The properties of vectors are discussed in the examples and their use in application problems. The graphical representation of vectors allows for the introduction of the magnitude of a vector.

Complex numbers are introduced in this part of tutorial along with their properties such as the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of complex numbers. Other representations of complex numbers are presented such as the trigonometric and the exponential ones. Famous formulas such as De Moivre’s Formulas are used in examples to calculate complex numbers.

Tutorial Features:

Specific Tutorial Features:

• Graphical illustration of the operations of vectors and the formulation of complex numbers.
