Visualization of Graphs of Functions of One and Two Variables

pdf PDF


The paper deals with the problem of how to create graphs of different functions with the help of different types of software. Discussed are both graphs of functions of one variable and functions of two variables. As for the software, following four types are discussed: a) applets free of charge, b) special commercial software, c) widely used commercial software, d) software free of charge. For comparison, positives and negatives of each of them are mentioned in each section.
