Maths A level and Graph drawing

  Colinp 11:43 06 Oct 2004

My daughter is doing maths and further maths at A level. She needs a graphical drawing package, presumably similar to what you can get on some calculators.

Apparently what is available in MS Office is not suitable.

Any ideas please?

(click here) and put mathematics into their search, other sites you can try include Zdnet & Cnet downloads.

The best port of call will be her tutor at school. He/she will know what's going to be studied on the course. A quick call to the school should do it.

Excel also has a graph drawing facility, depends how complicated the Graph is......

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

dave h. I suggested Excel to her myself, but she said it wasn't good enough for her purposes!!!

One advantage is that it's free, and therefore she could take it for a spin at no risk. One of the problems with mathematical graphics software is that there are so many different disciplines - what suits one mathematician isn't right for another. In your daughter's case she needs a broad-brush application that can perform lots of different functions - see what she thinks of my link.

Thanks FE. She seems to think that that is the program for her, and it's free.
