About the Lesson

A slider is a useful calculator tool in action/consequence documents. Sliders can be used to control various parameters, for example, in equations, or values in a table. This calculator feature may be used to illustrate transformations and translations of graphs, specific values of a function, and limits. This document provides detailed steps showing how to construct a tns file with one minimized slider that cycles through a specific list of values together with two traditional sliders.
