By means of four spin buttons, the user sets the parameters for a parabola and the parabolic path of its vertex so that the implied family of parabolas generate an envelope that is also a parabola. An accompanying graph automatically updates. Another spin button gives the user some control over the spacing of five parabolas in the family. A sixth spin button allows the user to slide the "base" parabola along the envelope. Click the image above left to see a screen capture of the interface. Jon Peltier of Peltier Technical Services, Inc., contributed materially to this module.

By means of three spin buttons, the user specifies the parameters of a parabola: the quadratic- and linear-term coefficients and the vertical intercept. An accompanying chart updates automatically. Seven additional spin buttons give the user control of the chart and three buttons reset the values, place the vertex in the chart and return a point on the parabola to the vertex. Click on the image, above left, for a screen capture of the interface.
