Example 1

Sketch the curve given by the parametric equations [i]x[/i] = [i]t[/i][math]^{^2}[/math] – 3 and [i]y[/i] = 2[i]t[/i] – 1 for –3 ≤ [i]t[/i] ≤ 3.
1. Create a table of values for –3 ≤ [i]t[/i] ≤ 3.[br]2. Plot the ([i]x[/i], [i]y[/i]) coordinates and connect them in order to create a[br]smooth curve.[br][br][br]This applet is provided by Walch Education as supplemental material for their mathematics programs.
