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
Graph Parametric Equations teaching resource plus worksheets - No Prep. Teach students to use the TI 83 - 84 to graph Parametric Equations. Easy to follow directions. Learn about Mode,Tstep and more. Great for Trigonometry, PreCalculus, AP Calculus BC, College Calculus 2. Also included is a handout/worksheet for your students to practice with the graphs.
I don’t always represent line segments using parametric equations but when I do I make sure the parametric equations are line segments themselves ;)
Calculus Tangents for Parametric Equations. Students use the formulas for derivatives of parametric equations to find derivatives and them apply the derivative at a particular point to find the equation of tangent lines.
