Position vector functions and derivatives
In this tutorial, we will explore position vector functions and think about what it means to take a derivative of one. Very valuable for thinking about what it means to take a line integral along a path in a vector field (next tutorial).
Using a position vector valued function to describe a curve or path
Visualizing the derivative of a position vector valued function
Understanding the differential of a vector valued function
Concrete example of the derivative of a vector valued function to better understand what it means
