That question is so general and vague it's either unanswerable, or very
easy to answer.
I'll try the 'very easy' answer: yes, there is probably code somewhere
to draw a parabola or curve. Have you tried making a start on this
yourself? Did you run into a problem?
Or perhaps: did you try googling for 'draw parabola' or 'parabola equation'?
If you've not made a start on attempting this problem, and need help,
try breaking down your help request into sub-requests. Like, you might
be wondering what the algorithm or maths is for drawing a
parabola/curve. Or you might be wondering about how to display a curve
on screen. (Ascii output? Generating an image file like a gif? Output to
a window using a GUI toolkit like wxPython?) Or are you just expecting
someone to post fully functional code from a vague request?
The following is highly recommended reading. It's called "How to ask
questions the smart way":
best of luck!
