Lesson Plan: Equation of a Plane: Vector, Scalar, and General Forms Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to find the vector, scalar (standard or component), and general (Cartesian or normal) forms of the equation of a plane given the normal vector and a point on it.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • find the vector, scalar (standard or component), and general (Cartesian or normal) forms of the equation of a plane given the normal vector and a point on it.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • the dot product and cross product of 3D vectors,
  • forms of straight line equations in space.
