Who said we have to normalise vectors?
Sometimes, if asked for, but not as a matter of course.
Don't we need three mutually orthogonal normalised eigenvectors to diagonalise a symmetric matrix?
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure why one would want or need to do that but it makes me giggle every time I teach it. It's definitely one of the things that make you go "hmmmmmm".
