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 *P*(x) of one variable x, with
some coefficients parametrized by a variable *t*. You will then see an
animated picture with the roots and the curve of *P*(x) vary following
the variation of *t*.

Examples of polynomials under variation are at your disposal.
