This activity from the Physics department at Syracuse University, reviewed for grades 9-12 by Illuminations, is an online tutorial on using vector cross products. This activity, which requires a Java-enabled web browser, allows students to control two vectors and calculate their cross product based on the values they set. Students can move the plane by clicking and dragging on parts of the diagram.
