The movement and adjustment of vectors was a little troublesome at first, but
after a while the program is very helpful and easy.

Nice job. I especially like how you including the coordinate system for each
vector. It was very helpful.

Not the best vector page. Would have been better if more aesthetic.

Not very flexible, but it works. Once you place the vectors, there is no way to
change them but to restart. Otherwise, good.

This site is a great tool for someone wishing to enhance their ability to add
vectors using the head to tail method.

The drawback of this applet is that it forces the user to add vectors with the tip to tail method, and not (imo, the more useful) parallelogram method. However, the applet runs smoothly and is instructive nonetheless.
