MA.10 - Parametric Equations
MA.10 The student will use parametric equations to model and solve practical problems.
UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD
· Parametric equations are used to express two dependent variables, x and y, in terms of an independent variable (parameter), t.· Some curves cannot be represented as a function, f(x). Parametric graphing enables the representation of these curves in terms of functions.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
