This precalculus video provides a basic introduction into parametric equations. It explains the process of eliminating the parameter t to get a rectangular equation of y in terms of an x variable. It also discusses how to graph plane curves which is the same as graphing parametric equations. This video is useful for high school and college students taking precalculus or calculus 2. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems including parametric equations that contain trigonometry such as sine and cosine functions which leads to the graphs of conic sections such as circles and ellipses.

Amazing, Life Changing Tutor

Before I met Jonathan, I was struggling through most of my STEM classes because I was simply not studying properly. He taught me all kinds of new study habits that would help me to save time, raise my grades, and lower my stress. Jonathan was specifically tutoring me in vector calculus and is an amazing tutor on the subject. You will walk away from a lesson with a game plan knowing exactly what you need to do before your next session with him or before your next exam in order to do well in the course. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
