lecture 7: lines in $\mathbb{R}^3$

After doing one more cross product example, we'll write parametrized equations for lines in $\mathbb{R}^3$ (11.5). We'll figure out how to tell if a particular point is on the line, and we'll project the line onto one of the coordinate planes and figure out how to describe the projected line with parametric and Cartesian equations. If there is time, we'll try to decide if two specified lines are parallel, intersecting, or skew (not parallel, not intersecting).
