Curvy Slide: Equilateral Triangle Cross Sections

Below, we have a function graph drawn in the (shaded) xy-plane. This graph has been rotated 90 degrees (upwards) about the xAxis. Built around this rotated graph is a slide with equilateral triangle cross sectionsparallel to the yz-plane (x = 0). You can move the LARGE POINTS anywhere you'd like within Q1 & Q2. The n slider alters the degree of the polynomial The ra slider changes the side length of the equilateral triangle. The filling slider adjusts the opacity of the objects. Have fun exploring!

Slide the MoveMeFirst slider to the right. Then slide the MoveMeSecond slider to the left.
