Polynomial Function of the Second Degree

A second degree polynomial function can be defined like this:

f(x) = ax2 + bx + c

f(x) = ax2 + bx + c






 

This demonstration is meant to show how the shape of the graph of this function depends upon the values of its coefficients a, b, and c. Change these coefficients by clicking on the buttons near their values and notice how the this alters the form of the graph.

Usually, a second degree polynomial function is called a quadratic function.

The bounds of this graph are:

x minimum = -10.0 x maximum = 10.0
y minimum = -10.0 y maximum = 10.0
