Interact with the data ...

  Graph tools enable you to interact with the graph view using your mouse. You can plot points, trace a tangent around a function graph, find a definite integral or the exact intersection point of two graphs, and much more.  

Three user defined functions, and five parameters can be used in function and point definitions. These are controlled from as special dialog box called the 'parameters box'. A slider on the parameters box enables you to vary any parameter smoothly in real time to create live animations.

View the results ...

The graph view displays graphs, points, triangles, statistical plots, scanned pictures and other graphical information. Every detail of the graph plots can be customised simply by pointing and clicking. A huge variety of graph types is possible with Maths Helper Plus, and the graphs paste straight into Word, PowerPoint or other Windows applications.

See the example graphs !

Setting graph scales and the size and shape of the graphing area are simple point and click operations. Four settable scale preset buttons remember your most common settings.
