Assignment For Section 1.9

Readings Questions:

You should read the section before attempting any reading questions or problems. Remember that you are responsible for all definitions and examples. Also remember to keep the answers to the reading questions on a separate piece of paper; these will be randomly collected from time to time.

1)   How do vector-valued functions differ from regular functions and how are they similar?

2)   Answer the questions posed in example 1.9.4 and make a general conjecture about how the relationship between  R  and  r  influence the shape of the path.  Use your graphing calculator to create three different examples.  Be sure to label your three sketches with the  R  and   r  values as well as your window/viiew values.
