Projection onto a Plane



The components of a vector in, and orthogonal to, a plane spanned by two other vectors are obtained in multiple ways. A task template provides the components and a sketch; vector methods from the multivariate calculus course, the projection matrix approach, and the minimization of the "error" are all illustrated.
