bpolynomial – Drawing polynomial functions of up to order 3

This package helps plotting polynomial and root functions up to order three. The package provides macros to calculate B├ęzier curves exactly matching a given constant, linear, quadratic or cubic polynomial, or square or cubic root function. In addition, tangents on all functions and derivatives of polynomials can be calculated.
