In math, there are many different kinds of functions, because not everything in the world exists on a plane with two variables. So far, everything we have been doing has been on the **Cartesian** plane: ℝ^2. This unit introduces you to different kinds of functions that model the world around us.

**Parametric Functions**

Derivatives of Parametric Functions - First Derivative & Second Derivative of a Parametric Function

Parametrics and Motion - Parametric Motion Expressed through Vector-Valued Functions

Position Vector - Displacement of Parametric Functions & Arc Length/Distance of Parametric Functions

**Polar Functions **

Polar Conversions

Derivatives of Polar Functions - Slope of Tangent Line for Polar Functions

Area Under the Curve - Simple Area Under Polar Curves

Area Between Two Curves If the curves intersect, then you may have to find the area inside the curves by splitting the region.

Thousands of students are studying with us for the AP Calculus AB/BC exam.
