Parametric
Equations

by Kasey Nored

We want
to explore parametric equations and begin looking at

where 0
< t <2p.

a and b are equal

a = 2
and b = 1

a = 1
and b = 2

As you
can see above a drives our apparent x value and b drives our apparent y value.

For a
bit of further exploration we want to look at the following equations

above a
and b are equal

here a =
2 and b = 1

and a =
1 and b = 2

a = b

a = 1
and b = 2

a = 2
and b = 1
