functions and animation

A function is basically a relationship between values or variables. Independent variables affect the value of dependent variables. For the sake of this DriveBy, we'll only focus on functions with 2 variables, but keep in mind that you can have as many as you wish. We'll use the name x for the independent variable, and y for the dependent variable i.e. we're going to change x manually, and that will in turn change y automatically; x is the input, y is the output; and so on...
