hey, can someone explain vectors to me? im soooooo lost, I don't understand them at ALL. please please please help me. :(

this is a forum for help with homework questions. Asking for a dissertation on vector algebra is a bit much.
Also, it will probably not be any more comprehensible here than in your textbook. Looks lie it's time for a little facetoface help.

has a good introduction. If you can't keep up with that, you definitely need some face time with your instructor. 
well i'll check out the website but im homeschooled so facetime isn't gonnna happen.

Here's another site that may help you.

And don't give up on the face time. We homeschooled our children for several years, and there are always support groups available. Someone near you will know about vectors. If you can't find anyone in your immediate circle of friends, don't be afraid to visit a nearby school or college. A math teacher there will be willing to help, or can point you to someone (even *gasp* a student!) who will be able to show you.
Vectors are cool stuff, and can make lots of computations very easy. When I was in high school I bough the Schaum Outline series on Vector Analysis and it was a great resource.
