Designed for Trigonometry, PreCalculus, and Calculus: Parametric Equations - Eliminating the Parameter, Converting to Rectangular
This activity is suitable for PreCalculus - Trigonometry and can be used as a review for Calculus 2 or AP Calculus BC classes before studying the Calculus of Parametric Curves. The concept of Parametric Equations can be difficult for students and yet this topic is so important, especially later in Calculus. In this rigorous activity, students will convert parametric equations to equivalent rectangular equations. The problems require substitution and also Pythagorean Trig Identities.
☑ Task Cards: There are 2 sets of 16 cards with problems leading to ellipses, straight lines, parabolas, and hyperbolas. One set is in color and the other in B/W.
☑ Master List of Questions
☑ Student Notes with two examples done out and two guided examples for them to complete
☑ Student response sheets
☑ Worksheet with ten similar problems. This can be used as an assessment, enrichment, or Homework.
☑ All Answer keys
