A propos de l'auteur

“With more than a million YouTube hits, Dr Chris Tisdell is the equivalent of a best-selling author or chart-topping musician. And the unlikely subject of this mass popularity? University mathematics.” [Sydney Morning Herald, 14/6/2012].



"Introduction to Vectors" takes learning to a new level by combining written notes with online video. Each lesson is linked with a YouTube video from award-winning teacher and best-selling author Dr Chris Tisdell, where he explains the material in an inspiring and engaging way. Vectors provide a fascinating tool to describe motion and forces in physics and engineering. They also provide a simple framework for understanding geometry.
