There are many different kinds of functions in math 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: โ„^2. This unit introduces you to different kinds of functions that model the world around us.ย 

What To Expect ๐Ÿค“

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.
  • Polar Arc Length - Arc Length for Polar Functions
