Solving Quadratic Equations

Posted February 29, 2012

So here we have a little grapher that solves quadratic equations visually. Just enter the coefficients in the equation.

Quadratic Equation:       y = a x2 + b x + c

Enter:                               y = x2 + x +

Your browser does not support the canvas element.

Solution:

Analytical solution by factoring (with a little help from the quadratic equation if necessary).

Hopefully, this can help students learn about factoring and quadratics in a more graphical way.

Notes:

This is my first interactive post. I use Javascript in combination with HTML5. Now I need to figure out how to interact with the image itself, instead of the textboxes.
