I have been tasked with creating a C++ program (with GDI+ for graphics) that takes a set of user defined points and creates polynomial curve through them. For extra credit, I have to support a parametric polynomial for any number of points. The thing is.. he didn't explain what a parametric polynomial is! So I need some help understanding how to figure one out based on a set of points.. in layman's terms, please. I've taken Calc 1, so I'm not that up-to-par on my calculus skills, just so you know what level I'm at.
Any help would be appreciated.
