Graph of Polynomial

With a very high order of polynomial, you can fit any data set. This exercise lets you experiment with a polynomial that only goes to X cubed. The center line for Y = 0 is yellow. There are no numbers on the axes, but you should be able to estimate them from the coefficients (hint: use a to calibrate the Y-axis). You start with each coefficient equal to zero. Please experiment with them one at a time to see what happens. Note that the graph is very sensitive to the coefficients for X squared and X cubed, so the scrollbars are set to give quite small numbers.
