Equation(s) grapher  desperate
Posted:
Apr 12, 2003 3:41 PM


I'm going bananas trying to find a SIMPLE equation grapher that will produce quality graphs that I can use with MS Word to create worksheets, tests, quizzes, help sheets, etc ....
I need to graph simple linear equations, linear inequalities, systems of equations, systems of inequalities, and quadratics (I teach Algebra I and II). On rare occasions an exponential function or two ...
I've found a multitude of graphing programs, but, they seem to want to think that everyone has one graph/page or they're incomprehensibly difficult to use, or, don't integrate into MS Word worth a squat, or, create only bitmap, jpg or gif images  some really decent graphing programs created grid lines so light that I could print them at home, but on a copier at school? Forget it.
<sigh> ..
Nothing complicated, with rotations and/or polar coordinates ... I have a laser printer (noncolor) so color is not an issue, or even desired).
Can anyone direct me ... I'll buy the margaritas next time you're down Houston way ...
Thanks Jerry
