Math :: conic sections :: parabola

Logo for Math :: conic sections :: parabola
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.
