    I have to use computer generated graphs of equations for my calculus class and am in need of a program similar to the Winplot for Windows. Anybody know of any online or free download for Mac?

    Take a look in your Utilities folder. A very powerful app. (Grapher) awaits you and comes for free with every Mac ;)

    Yep, Grapher is awesome (besides the few annoying bugs that is).

    Oh thank you! Never even knew about that!
    Now is there a way to calculate the intersections and integrals of functions?
    This program aesthetically blows the one that my teacher showed (and what my other classmates are using). However, I have till Monday when my assessment is due so is there like a grapher-for-dummies guide I can use? Or else I have to find another simpler program :(

    Wow! First time I've seen that program too. Pretty nice looking 3D graphs!!!

    Domain and Range

    I'm in algebra 2 and delighted to see this program for a project that requires we design a cartoon character out of functions and relations... only problem is, I can't seem to find a way to set domain and range. Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Tai
