Review of Graphic Calculus software (for Windows)
|This 'guessing game' is perfect for algebra students when they are first studying things like graphing lines, absolute value function, parabolas, etc. You can choose from pre-made functions, or the teacher can create his or her own set. The student simply enters a formula, the computer draws a graph for the student's formula, and if it goes on top of the one already there - you got it right!|
I guessed y = 4 cos(2x) but it wasn't that...
You can obviously graph functions, in normal and parametric forms. You can study and graph diagram of change, gradient, area under the curve, differential equations, cobweb methods, financial mathematics, Taylor polynomials, functions of two variables, linear programming (which is an algebra topic again), and complex functions. It therefore covers mathematical topics ranging from algebra course to college level studies.
In the TOOLS section you can create profiles so as to choose only certain buttons and options to appear on the screens. This can be useful for school teachers who don't want the students to get distracted or confused by too many things to do.
Overall, a well thought-of and well-done software that you can be happy with. Price sounds right too: $15.
If you like the Graphic Calculus software and would like to support HomeschoolMath.net with your purchase (I get a small commission), please use this link to buy the program from Kagi (a reseller).
