This applet allows the exploration of graphical and analytic properties of quadratic functions.  Supporting material for this applet can be found within the authors' MathDL posting on "The Gutter Problem."


The applet was developed using JBuilder and the Mathematical Java Toolkit of Joe Yanik. Source code is available under the GPL. This work was supported by the NSF, CCLI project number 0339117.


The applet is built using Java 1.4.2, and an appropriate browser plugin (the Runtime Environment is fine) might have to be installed before the applet will work.
