GrafEq math graphing software

By Murray Bourne, 24 Jan 2006

GrafEq is interesting software. It is very robust when graphing relations. (A relation has more than one value of y for each value of x, eg a circle. A function, on the other hand, has only one y-value for each value of x, eg a parabola.) GrafEq is also good with functions!

GrafEq (pronounced "graphic") is worth a look as a mathematics teaching and learning tool.

I liked most of what I saw in GrafEq, including its interface. Things I thought needed work:

  • It seems that you get one fixed size graph (about 500px x 500 px) and cannot resize it.
  • While you can zoom in on a graph, the scale is hard to read since you only get a number at each end of the axis (counting each tick mark was rather tedious).

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
