How do you graph parametric equations?

Graph x(θ)=3cosθ,y(θ)=6sinθ, where [π,2π].

Drag a term, phrase, or value into each box to correctly complete the statements.

The graph of the parametric equations is the  [                       ]of an ellipse. The length of the major axis of the semi-ellipse is   [                   ], the length of the minor axis is  [                     ] , and the center is the origin. The semi-ellipse is elongated  [                     }.

Arrows are drawn on the semi-ellipse to indicate movement in a  [                           ]direction.

Look at the graph here  : https://www.desmos.com/calculator/oi55ipyp9b

Bottom half of an ellipse

Length of major axis  = 2(6)   = 12

Length of the minor axis  = 6

It is elongated vertically

It  moves  in a counter-clockwise direction.....to see this....when  theta =  pi  we are at  (-3, 0)

When theta is = 2pi, we are at  (3,0)

And we  move  from left to right on the ellipse  ( counter-clockwise)   May 15, 2020
