Graphing the Power Function

Please be patient! On some machines the graph may take a short time to appear.
  • On the left you will see a graph of
     y = xb for x > 0.

  • Below the graph you will find a slider. This slider will control the values of the exponent b.
  • Move the slider and watch how the graph changes.
