Parabola (Quadratic Relations)
How to Use this Applet
The Slider Area
The sliders change parameters h, k and p in the quadratic relation.
 Drag a slider to change the value of a parameter.
 The <LEFT> and <RIGHT> arrow keys can be used to change the selected parameter [light blue].
 The <UP> and <DOWN> arrow keys can be used to increase or decrease the selected parameter. (Use this feature for fine adjustments.)
 If the arrow keys don't respond, click the cursor in the applet frame then try again.
 Drag a parameter scale to "move" it. (I.e., change the range but maintain the scale "length".)
 Drag towards or away from a parameter thumb to "rescale" the scale.
 Select the corresponding parameter button to enter a value for a parameter.
The Graph Area
 Drag the vertex of the parabola to move it in the coordinate system.
 Drag any location along the parabola to change parameter a.
 Click and drag any other location to see the coordinates of the cursor and locations along the graph of the parabola.
 Move the cursor into the equation area to see which type of parabola (horizontal or vertical) is being displayed.
 The <SHIFT> key: Click and drag in the graph area to move the entire coordinate system.
 The <CONTROL> key: Click and drag in the graph area towards or away from the origin to change the x and y axis scale.
