Enter an Equation using the variables x and/or y and an =, press Go:
(Note: there is also the Flash Version.)
It can plot an equation where x and y are related somehow (not just y=...), like these:
- x^2+y^2=9 (an equation of a circle with a radius of 3)
If you don't include an equals sign, it will assume you mean "=0"
It has not been well tested, so have fun with it, but don't trust it.
If it gives you problems, let me know.
Note: it may take a few seconds to finish, because it has to do lots of calculations.
If you just want to graph a function in "y=..." style you may prefer Function Grapher and Calculator
Use the zoom slider (to the left zooms in, to the right zooms out).
To reset the zoom to the original bounds click on the Reset button.
Click-and-drag to move the graph around. If you just click-and-release (without dragging), then the spot you clicked on will be the new center
Note: the plots use computer calculations. Round-off can cause errors or values can be missed completely.
