# Changing a Coefficient in Polynomials of Low Degree

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration illustrates how changing a coefficient affects the shape of the graph of a poynomial and its first and second derivatives. Observe the variation in the location and number of critical and inflection points.
