Projection onto a Plane

The components of a vector in, and orthogonal to, a plane spanned by two other vectors are obtained in multiple ways. A task template provides the components and a sketch; vector methods from the multivariate calculus course, the projection matrix approach, and the minimization of the "error" are all illustrated.

Note: In Maple 2018, context-sensitive menus were incorporated into the new Maple Context Panel, located on the right side of the Maple window. If you are using Maple 2018, instead of right-clicking to bring up a menu, as shown in many of these videos, you will find the operations you need in the Context Panel. Learn how the Context Panel and other improvements in Maple 2018 let you and your students do even more with less effort.
