Equation(s) grapher - desperate

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 (non-color) 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 ...
