The red points are connected by a cubic Bezier curve. The blue points are the control points.

The underlying JavaScript code

var brd = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('jxgbox',{boundingbox:[-4,4,4,-4],keepaspectratio:true,axis:true});

var p = [];

var col = 'red'; 
p.push(brd.create('point',[2,1],{strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));        // data point
col = 'blue'; 
p.push(brd.create('point',[0.75,2.5],{strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));   // control point
p.push(brd.create('point',[-0.3,0.3],{strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));   // control point

col = 'red'; 
p.push(brd.create('point',[-3,1],{strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));       // data point
col = 'blue'; 
p.push(brd.create('point',[-0.75,-2.5],{strokeColor:col,fillColor:col})); // control point
p.push(brd.create('point',[1.5,-2.8],{strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));   // control point

col = 'red'; 
p.push(brd.create('point',[2,-0.5],{strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));     // data point

var c = brd.create('curve', JXG.Math.Numerics.bezier(p), 
               {strokecolor:'blue', strokeOpacity:0.6, strokeWidth:5}); 

var addSegment = function() {
   brd.suspendUpdate();
   col = 'blue'; 
   p.push(brd.create('point',[Math.random()*8-4,Math.random()*8-4],
           {strokeColor:col,fillColor:col})); // control point
   p.push(brd.create('point',[Math.random()*8-4,Math.random()*8-4],
           {strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));   // control point
   col = 'red'; 
   p.push(brd.create('point',[Math.random()*8-4,Math.random()*8-4],
           {strokeColor:col,fillColor:col}));     // data point
   brd.unsuspendUpdate();
};

var removeSegment = function() {
   brd.suspendUpdate();

   if (p.length>4) {
       brd.removeObject(p[p.length-1]);
       brd.removeObject(p[p.length-2]);
       brd.removeObject(p[p.length-3]);
       p.splice(p.length-3,3);
   }
   brd.unsuspendUpdate();
};
