From a calculus student project:

"The Use of Parametric Curves in Typefaces"

Although I am not solving integrals, every time I use the computer to type a paper I am using an application of parametric equations. It is amazing to see the hundreds of typefaces that exist and know that in each one, each individual letter's characteristics are made according to specific parametric equations...."


At the end of the project is this diagram:
