DVS Precalculus: My Vector Life Project
• Created By Mr. McGregor
• Reflecting on the UC Personal Statement you are constructing in Travis’s class your task is to choose at least four experiences (forces) that have shaped your dreams and aspirations. Because vectors have both a magnitude (length) and a direction (bearing) they will represent how your life experiences have pushed you towards your final destination. In other words, some life experiences have a large impact (magnitude) and help shape your dreams while other experiences distract you from your dreams by taking you off course (bearing). It is your task to determine how both the magnitude and direction of these forces are moving you towards your final destination.

In order to represent how these “invisible” forces have shaped your life you will construct a Vector Map that will illustrate your journey. The Vector Map will be constructed using Photoshop/Illustrator and will have tabloid dimensions (11 by 17 inches) similar to the Transforming Your Identity project.

The Legend includes all the mathematics (written work) involved in finding your Vectors. For each experience you must show how you calculated both the component form and the standard form. In addition to showing the math you must also explain in words why you chose that magnitude and direction for that particular experience (India had a large influence on my life (magnitude) because I realized that education was central to personal growth and development, therefore pointing me in the right trajectory (bearing). Your ability to choose vectors that represent what is happening “invisibly” will demonstrate your understanding of what a vector is.
