This paper is intended to serve as a suggested in-service training course for mathematics teachers on the secondary level . The topic, "Curve Tracing", is to serve as a vehicle to reintroduce various topics of mathematics both as a review of these topics and as a possible source of material for inclusion into their teaching.

The need for in-service programs has become acute since there is a wide gap between the trends of contemporary mathematics curricula and the training of our teachers. This attempt is hoped to have a fresh approach to traditional topics with a contemporary point of view.
