An elliptic curve can be written as a plane algebraic curve defined by an equation of the form

[math]\displaystyle{ y^2=x^3+ax+b\,. }[/math]

JXG.Options.axis.strokeColor = '#cccccc';
brd = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('jxgbox', {boundingbox: [-15, 10, 15, -10], axis:true});
var b = brd.create('slider',[[1,-3],[10,-3],[-10,0,10]],{name:'a'});
var a = brd.create('slider',[[1,-4],[10,-4],[-10,0,10]],{name:'b'});

var c1 = brd.create('functiongraph', [function(x){ return Math.sqrt(x*x*x+a.Value()*x+b.Value()); }],
var c2 = brd.create('functiongraph', [function(x){ return -Math.sqrt(x*x*x+a.Value()*x+b.Value()); }],
