    calculus and vectors are differnt things,calculus is all about integration and differentiation...whereas vectors algebra helps to find the magnitude and direction of quantity without any calculus...

    Vectors usually deal with space. For example, in a 3D game world, you need vectors to determine the position of things. Bob is at [x=3, y=10, z=4]. Bob is moving with a speed of [2km/h, 4km/h, 0km/h]. Calculus would be needed to help with some complicated physics. Sometimes you need to find out how fast an object is moving, or how fast the rate at which it is moving is changing, or how fast that rate is changing, or how fast that range is changing, or how fast that rate is changing... and calculus can help with these complex mathematics. Advanced functions... like f(x)=zi*sqrt(x+34y-n/345)? Well, they're uh... useful in torturing students.

    In an advanced functions class, you will likely not use calculus as much. It'll be more like Algebra 2 or Pre-Calculus. Calculus and Vectors will include more analytic geometry and linear algebra.

    calculus is basically-- summing up things which is defined by a mathematical function (called as mathematical modelling) , let's say something defined by a variable now to sum up the variation we need integration. we find area of any graph by calculus. whereas vectors are designed to define direction of the variables involved in that function . i think this is enough for now :)

    Funny how everyone is trying to define the individual terms instead of describing the curricula of the specific school courses mentioned. . .

    exactly , i just believe knowing application matters than just solving problem, it's worth less to know unless you know what to do with it
