Curvy Slide: Equilateral Triangle Cross Sections
- Tim Brzezinski
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!
