Curvy Slide: Square Cross Sections
- Tim Brzezinski
- Algebra, Geometry, Mathematics, Square
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 square cross sections parallel 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 square. The filling slider adjusts the opacity of the objects. The MoveMe slider moves the square cross section. Have fun exploring!
