Vector algebra is an Essential Topic for most science fields like engineering, mathematics and physics with a critical use.

in physics, we use the vectors to describe velocity, momentum, acceleration, position, etc.

this course will cover the fundamentals of the vector algebra and implementation of vectors algebra in a various field in mathematics.

 

gaining the maximal benefit in this course will be through practicing. in every exercise you need to try figure out how to solve before watching the solution.

you will definitely have a hard time trying to figure out how to solve it. However, when you got the "Ah,Ha" moment sure you will feel the passion to continue practicing.

Zinaty is a Senior Electrical and computer engineer worked in wide range of positions: • System performance analyst. • Software Project manager. • Back End Developer. This unique career path equipped him with a various skills: • high mathematics skills. • system engineering. • Project management. • Back End developing: node.js, java, python. • Self learning skills. In order to gain more profound knowledge in his career, he studied the core courses of the physics major witch introduced him to new mathematical and physics concepts. The main core for engineering is without a doubt is mathematics and physics. Therefore, in order to develop new technologies and make the world a better place, knowing the core concepts are a must. Developing and learning new leading technologies is his truly passion. However, he believe that in order to become a better developer in the High-Tech fields, knowing mathematics and physics is a critical advantage. He believe that the right way to grasp a concept in the different scince fields, is to practice it. His courses will give the true opportunity to learn the theory and practice it in the most efficient way.
