Lesson Plan: Parametric Equations and Curves in Two Dimensions Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to graph curves given by a pair of parametric equations in 2D.
Students will be able to
- sketch and identify graphs of parametric equations,
- convert parametric equations into rectangular equations in order to sketch their graphs.
Students should already be familiar with
- converting between parametric equations and rectangular equations,
- finding the domain and range of parametric equations.
Students will not cover
- hyperbolic functions.
