Exploring parametric representation with the TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator

Abstract

We introduce parametric equations in the first unit taught in our Pre-Calculus curriculum, immediately after teaching the definition of a function. The use of parametric equations greatly enhances the understanding of domain and range. We start with the students doing explorations on domain and range, using prescribed values for the parameter t. We use this… (More)
