Parametrizing a Line Segment - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

There are some situations that are useful to learn to parameterize. We commonly parameterize line segments, and require knowledge of the starting and ending positions. In order to understand how to parameterize line segments, students should understand the concept of parametric equations. The tools we use to parameterize a line can be useful when understanding how to parameterize a circle.
