Bezier Bernstein Applet
DIRECTIONS:   In this applet, you create a Bezier curve by placing control points. The applet uses the Bernstein-Bezier form
c(t) = B0n(t)p0 + B1n(t)p1 + B2n(t)p2 + ... + Bnn(t)pn
to create the curve by computing the basis functions
Bin(t) = [n! /( i! (n-i)!)] ti(1-t)n-i
at various values of t, and then computing the points on the curve.

The applet allows you to create multiple curves, by using the check box to enable multiple curves and then selecting new curves.
