Lesson Plan: Work Done by a Force Expressed in Vector Notation Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to calculate the work done by a constant force vector acting on a body over a displacement vector using the dot product.


Students will be able to

  • calculate the work done by a force when the force and position of the particle are given as vectors,
  • find the work done by a force in vector form when the displacement is given in terms of time.


Students should already be familiar with

  • dot products.
