It turns out the agenda I had planned for the 1st day was a bit ambitious. (I sometimes get too excited about what I get to teach you all!) What we actually got through was:

What is a vector?

Representing vectors to scale

adding vectors using a scale model

If you feel comfortable doing all of these things, you are doing fine. If you’re struggling a bit, we will be practicing these skills over the next week.

There are two packets. One is notes, the second is questions that go along with the notes. Your assignment is to answer the questions using the notes. I have solutions to about half of the problems on the same web page that you can use to help you if you’re confused. The questions are due on the first day of class.
