The aim of the tool is to visually illustrate the relation between the coefficients of a polynomial and the geometric properties of this polynomial (its curve and its roots).
To use this tool, please enter a polynomial of one variable , with some coefficients parametrized by a variable . You will then see an animated picture with the roots and the curve of vary following the variation of .
