random function

This construction contains an updated version of the piecewise cubic function I made some time ago.  I updated it so that the whole curve is the same object, the plot of one function.  The other major addition is a tab that lets you position the eight independent points randomly.  You move two corners of a box to give a range for the random points and when you click "New Random Function" the points will randomly position themselves and the curve will snap into place.  This may be a good exercise for calculus students exploring the relationships between a function, its derivative, and its antiderivative.
