There is a package you can get at It looks like this
will do what you want.

Any suggestions on how to plug into mathematica to derive parametric
equations from a quadratic? 
My example is: y= - x^2/ 72 + x. 
Using pencil and paper I get: x= 24 Sqrt[2 t] and y= -16 t^2 + 24 Sqrt[2
 Thanks again for whatever
