Scalar, Displacement, Vector, Force, Distance, Velocity, Speed
You should:
(a) define scalar and vector quantities and give examples.
After watching the IB video at the top of the page about physical quantities, units and vectors, try this game to see where your starting point is:

Read through these notes on Vectors and Scalars.
Vectors are quantities with magnitude and direction.
Scalar quantities have magnitude only.
Scalars 
Vectors 
Mass 
Force 
Temperature 
Displacement 
Speed 
Velocity 
Distance 
Momentum 
Energy 
Acceleration 
Vectors differ because they have direction as well as magnitude. Imagine a person walking a distance Disth from a from a point and then changing direction and walking a distance Distv; the vector diagram would look something like that below:
Adding Scalars: The total distance (scalar) travelled would be Disth + Distv
Adding vectors: The displacement (vector), which is the Resultant distance moved from O to P, would be DistR.For a printable version of these notes click here.
Copy the table of examples into your notes and then describe in your own words what the difference between vectors and scalars are. Describe how adding scalars and vectors are different.
Print out the worksheet and then check your answersHave a go at the game again but do it 1st time this time!!

You should check through these outcomes. If there is anything you can't do, check through the page again before you do your homework.
(a) You can now explain that a scalar has magnitude only and a vector has both magnitude and direction; You can also give at least 5 examples of each.
Now print out the Exam Questions and try them. These are the same standard as the questions you will get in your exam. As you get close to taking the exam, you should try to answer these so that it takes you 1 minute to get through a 1 mark question.
