how do you sketch a parametric curve
create a table of values with t, x, and y and then graph

MAKE SURE TO SHOW DIRECTION WITH ARROWS from initial point to terminal point
how to eliminate the parameter
solve for t in one equation and then sub that into the other
what is the equation for a circle centered at zero?
x^2 + y^2 = value

radius = value/2
how do you eliminate the parameter with an equation involving the square of a cos function plus the square of the sin function?
set cos^2t+ sin^2t=1 equal to x^2 + y^2 =1
what is dy/dx when there is a third variable t
dy/dx= (dy/dt)/(dx/dt) if dx/dt ≠0
formula for arc length l
L= ∫(from α to β) √(dx/dt)² + (dy/dt)² dt
how do you find when the slope of parametric equation is horizontal/vertical
horizontal: find where dy/dx=0, so where dy/dt=0 but dx/dt≠0
vertical : find where dx/dt=0 but dy/dt≠0
what do polar coordinates (r, θ) mean
theta is the angle from the polar axis, r is radius, or how far you go out from center
how do you convert from cartesian/polar and vice versa
how to sketch polar curves
can make a table of values with theta and r and then plot points
how to find points of intersection of polar equations
draw graphs
set equations equal
solve for thetas
check if pole is on both graphs
area inside a polar curve
a=∫from α to β ½(f(θ))² dθ = ∫from α to β ½(r)² dθ
