2D Graphing Software: Maple

Subject: 2D Graphing Software

Dear Sir,
I'm a first year student studying in a Junior College in Singapore.
Recently, I've been having a problem sketching curves, especially 
hyperbolas and certain mathematical equations. I've read in the news 
that certain college mathematic computer programs let you magnify a 
certain area and analyze the curve. For example you can find the 
intersection points of two curves.

I'm hoping that you can recommend some PC software that could help me 
tackle this problem. 

Yours sincerely,
Gail Chew
