### Applet: Graph of a function that parametrizes an ellipse

#### Applet loading

The green curve is the graph of the vector-valued function $\dllp(t) = (3\cos t, 2\sin t)$. This function parametrizes an ellipse. Its graph, however, is the set of points $(t,3\cos t, 2\sin t)$, which forms a spiral.

#### General information about three.js applets

The applet was made using three.js and requires Javascript as well as a browser that supports WebGL. For most three.js applets, you can drag with the mouse to rotate the view, drag with the right button to pan, and zoom in/out with the mouse wheel. Many applets contain points that you can drag to change values of variables.
