Module 25 - Parametric Equations Introduction | Lesson 1 | Lesson 2 | Lesson 3 | Self-Test Introduction Parametric equations can describe remarkably complicated abstract curves and they are also useful for describing practical real-world problems involving motion in two dimensions. In this module you will learn to graph and analyze parametric equations using the TI-83 and you will find slopes and arc lengths of parametric curves. Lesson Index: 25.1 - Parametric Graphs 25.2 - Chain Rule for Parametric Equations 25.3 - Arc Length of Parametric Curves After completing this module, you should be able to do the following: Define and graph various parametric equations with your TI-83. Use the Chain Rule to find dy / dx for parametric curves. Use the derivative features of the TI-83 to find derivatives for parametric curves. Find tangent lines and their slopes for parametric curves. Find lengths of parametric curves using the definition of arc length.
