Drag the blue arrows to change the polynomial.
How does the polynomial's formula change as you drag the dark blue arrows along the x-axis? Explain.
How does the polynomial's formula change as you drag the light blue "starting oint" arrow up and down along the y-axis? Explain.
What is the degree of this polynomial? How is this related to your answer to question 1 above?
The race car loses speed when it has to make sharp turns. It also cannot drive off the road and it must criss-cross between the cones. What's your fastest time you can get the race car across the finish line? What formula does this winning polynomial path have?
