# Parametric Curves in 2D

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

Explore a few examples of parametric curves in two dimensions. See how the and functions relate to the final drawn curve in the top-left corner. Also, select "derivatives" to see how and relate to , the slope of the parametric curve. The concavity, as given by , is also shown, in contrast to the rate of change of slope with respect to time. (Select "values" and "derivatives" to see all derivative values.)
