Ran across the concept of bivectors ( ) and now I’m wondering what an introductory physics course that uses them exclusively, no cross products ever, would be like. I know it really bugged me that the cross product only made sense in 3 spatial dimensions. (It still does bug me that there isn’t any exact analogue of multiplication for vectors.)
