This Parametric, Vector, Polar, and 3D Functions lesson plan also includes:
Twelfth graders investigate the capabilities of the TI-89. In this calculus lesson, 12th graders explore the parametric equation for a circle, for arc length of curves, and for trajectories. Students investigate the symbolic and graphical representation of vectors. Students use polar functions of investigate the area bounded by a curve. Students investigate a 3D graphing application.
