Larry Green's Calculus Videos -- Vector Valued Functions

This is a collection of 18 instructional videos on the role of vector valued functions in multivariable calculus. Each is a solution of a single problem on some topic. Topics range from theortical issues such as finding the domain of the function or where it is smooth to finding velocity, acceleration, unit tangent, unit normal, tangential and normal accelerations, arc length and curvature. Unfortunately, most of the examples use a helix which is one of the simplest cases, so students only see problems where many things simplify to 0 or 1 and don't learn what to do in other cases.
