MA.10 - Parametric Equations

  MA.10    The student will use parametric equations to model and solve practical problems. 

Adopted: 2016

BIG IDEAS

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.

ESSENTIALS

The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to

·  MA.101  Graph parametric equations.

·  MA.102  Use parametric equations to model practical problems, including motion over time.

·  MA.103  Determine solutions to parametric equations graphically.

·  MA.104  Use a graphing utility to graph and analyze parametric equations.
