1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the parametric equations for the portion of the parabola y=x^2 from
(-1,1) to (3,9)

2. Relevant equations

None that I know of.

3. The attempt at a solution

Using knowledge of parametric equations I am not sure how to start. My teacher never went over this in class and she assigned it as homework. How do I start?

If you let $x=t$ what would $y$ be? What values of $t$ would you use?
