Software for drawing vectors

I you remember back to high school physics, you attempted to draw vectors on graph paper, then add them together, etc.
Instead of drawing them on graph paper, then scanning them in and pasting the picture in power point, I'm trying to find software that would help me draw accurate vectors in rectangualr coordinates (like high school), so I can use them to teach the topic.

Any software suggestions?

I haven't used this program,

but I've heard of it. I'm not sure if it will do what yoou need, but it looks cool. Anyway, I figure that it would be worth a try.

I haven't used it since college, but MatLab will do this, although it's a fundamental function, and the program is way too expensive if that's all you want to do. I don't know of anything else, though. Sorry.
