step function explorer a-b parameters

Students can easily investigate the effects of the parameters on the greatest integer, or step function, by using the sliders. Note that the function colour changes with the signs of a and b, for a visual cue. Also note that once the steps are a certain distance from the origin, the endpoints no longer appear.
