Vector shoot --- Introduction ---

This is a visual exercise on the linear combination of vectors (linear algebra): given a set of vectors v1,...,vk and a set of scalars a1,...,ak, the linear combination

u = a1 v1 + a2 v2 + ... + ak vk
is a vector.

Therefore the exercise gives you the vectors vi2 described graphically in a figure, as well as the concrete values of the coefficients ai. And you are asked to click on the point in the figure which you think is the end of the vector u (a shot).

At the end of a session composed of several shots, you will be given a score computed according to the average precision of your shots during the session.

Choose a level of difficulty: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 .

There is also a detailed menu for the parameters of this exercise.
