Graph of a PolynomialMost of the numbers  coefficients, the degree of the polynomial, the minimum and maximum bounds on both x and yaxes  are clickable. To change a value up click (or drag the cursor to speed things up) a little to the right of the vertical center line of a number. Clicking on the left has the opposite effect. See if you can predict (and explain) how a change in a coefficent effects the graph of the polynomial.
Another applet helps investigate the behavior of polynomials depending on the distribution of their roots. Activities Contact Front page Contents Geometry Store Copyright © 19962017 Alexander Bogomolny
