This text introduces quaternions, their mathematical properties, and how they can be used to rotate objects. We introduce quaternion mathematics and discuss why quaternions are a better choice for implementing rotation than matrix implementations.

The book is prepared for average students with a thorough knowledge of the elements of algebra and geometry, and is believed to be a simple and elementary treatment founded directly upon the fundamental ideas of the subject.

Quaternions, like the real numbers, can be added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided. They are composed of four numbers that work together as one. This book contains a brief summary of important laws in physics written as quaternions.
