POLAR EQUATIONS

This program will graph polar equations of the form r = r(t), where t is the angle, as well as parametric equations of the form x = x(t), y = y(t). Up to two equations can be plotted, and then you can "twiddle" any parameters a, b, c, contained in the functions r(t), x(t), y(t). Sample equations are provided.
