132- Parametric Equations as a Culminating Precalculus Activity

Thursday, November 13, 2014: 3:15 PM-4:30 PM
E21B (Greater Richmond Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
William Rose

  • Presentation #132, Rose, Parametric Equations.pdf (9.5 MB)

  • Studying curves defined by parametric equations can be used to more carefully examine the most important functions of precalculus by combining these in novel and interesting ways. I will present many examples of parametric equations whose representation can challenge students to master their basic inventory of functions.
