At this stage you should be comfortable controlling the simulation, if you are not you might want to try the guided activity. Your goal is to match the unknown function g(x) by changing the values of the coefficients a, b, and c in your polynomial function, f(x)=y.
  • Let the red curve on the graph be the known polynomial function, f(x).
  • Let the dark blue curve on the graph be the unknown polynomial function, g(x).
  • The thin curves represent individual contributions to f(x). Namely, ax2, bx, and c.
  • Record all your observations, results, and analysis as they may be worth marks.
  • Good hunting!
