Interactive, E-book


Learn about graphing polynomials. The shape of the curve changes as the constants are adjusted. View the curves for the individual terms (e.g. y=bx ) to see how they add to generate the polynomial curve. Embedded from http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/equation-grapher

Reviewer Comments:

This animation/simulation graphically shows the polynomial functions while varying the constants. The animation/simulation is easy to use. Constants may be changed using a slider or by entering the values. The shape of the curve changes in real-time as the constants are adjusted. These PhET simulations, designed at the University of Colorado at Boulder, are fantastic interactive online tools for students to explore concepts in science and math.
