--- Introduction ---
This module is an exercise on plane parametric curves. The questions asked are
very simple: one graphically shows the parametric curve, with an animation
illustrating the position of the point on the curve with respect to the
value of the parameter t, but without giving the functions which define
the curve. Then via a multiple choice quizz, you are asked to determine
either the values of the functions defining the curve, or the values of the
derivatives of these functions, or both, for the case where t=0.
