Parametric equation: the parametric equation of a curve is its representation through equations which express the coordinates of the points of the curve as functions of a variable, called a parameter; ex: y = cost or y = sint
Parametric Equations with Calculus Task Cards Guided Notes HW QR
Calculus and Parametric Equations These great activities and resources are designed for AP Calculus BC and College Calculus This lesson is included in the section on Calculus and Parametrics, usually in the last unit of the course.
Parametric Equations - Converting to RectangularThis activity is suitable for PreCalculus - Trigonometry and can be used as a review for Calculus 2 or AP Calculus BC classes before studying the Calculus of Parametric Curves. The introduction to concept of Parametric Equations can be difficult for students and yet this topic is so important, especially later in Calculus.
