### Applet: Parametrized helix

#### Applet loading

The vector-valued function $\dllp(t)=(\cos t, \sin t, t)$ parametrizes a helix, shown in blue. This helix is the image of the interval $[0,6\pi]$ (shown in cyan) under the mapping of $\dllp$. For each value of $t$, the red point represents the vector $\dllp(t)$. As you change $t$ by moving the cyan point along the interval $[0,6\pi]$, the red point traces out the helix.

#### 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.
