blanks); here
are the answers. 
· Please stay current with the material – an assignment is
coming. · For number 2 on p.340: It’s
not possible to use zero vector in the spanning set.To
span R2, any pair (need two,
2D vectors) of nonzero, noncollinear vectors will
do. To span R3 any triple (need 3, 3D vectors) of nonzero, noncoplanar
vectors will do. (They of course will be pairwise coplanar, but will not all
3 lie in the same plane – need a way to “get off the plane” to generate more
vectors.) Therefore, the two remaining nonzero
vectors will only span R2 (a plane). · Please see solutions to p.341 – number 16 and number 17
here. · Please study carefully solution to the number 9 on p.341 (explanation,
not just the answer is what is important!) · Please read Section

Overall Plan (Sense of Perspective): we study geometric vectors in
sections 6.1 to section 6.4 (Midchapter Review
including – plan to do as much as you can); ·
Then we learn Algebraic Vectors
(algebraic approach). The two approaches complement each other and are
always present (not necessarily used) together. ·
Please study the solution
to p.292 #17 ·
Please listen to
this good review. ·
Today we study
Section 6.3 – Please read p.293 – 294 to begin with. Then we look at collinear vectors.
Those are either lying on the same line or can be made to be on the same line
(i.e. the lines that support/carry the vectors are parallel to each other).
Read p.295. ·
Please read the
examples next: note the
angle between two vectors is the smallest angle they form when placed
tailtotail (0 < theta < 180 degrees) ·

Remember opposite vectors add up to a zero vector (zero magnitude,
arbitrary/any direction). ·
