Newton's Method

Use the mouse to move the point A to the desired location for the first approximation to a root of f(x). Then click the "Newton's Method" tool (it looks like a wrench and screwdriver) and use it to find the next approximation. See direction for using the tool in the hints area of the toolbar.
