How to Draw Vectors - Vectors are graphically represented on various instances for designing purposes. This is one of the most common ways of drawing a vector and it is going to help you a lot in your academic level as well. First thing you need to know is that vectors are drawn in the shape of an arrow. It has both direction and magnitude. A tail is the starting point of the vector and the end point is called the head. There are many ways for writing vectors. As long as your vector has a direction and magnitude, it is most likely to be accepted. These are some of the different methods for a vector representation for its direction. Relative Directions - One of the simplest ways of showing the direction of a vector is through relative direction: to the right, to the left, backwards, forwards, up and down. Compass Direction - Another simple yet common method of expressing the directions. In this method, direction is identified or indicated based on the points of compass: North, South, East and West. If the direction of vector is not exactly in the direction of the compass directions, then angles are used to indicate the middle grounds. Students learn how to write vectors that express both a magnitude and a direction with these worksheets.
