# Boosting vector calculus with the graphical notation

@article{Kim2019BoostingVC, title={Boosting vector calculus with the graphical notation}, author={Joon-Hwi Kim and Maverick S. H. Oh and Keun-Young Kim}, journal={arXiv: Physics Education}, year={2019} }

Learning vector calculus techniques is one of the major missions to be accomplished by physics undergraduates. However, beginners report various difficulties dealing with the index notation due to its bulkiness. Meanwhile, there have been graphical notations for tensor algebra that are intuitive and effective in calculations and can serve as a quick mnemonic for algebraic identities. Although they have been introduced and applied in vector algebra in the educational context, to the best of our…
