Equation Grapher

An equation grapher that takes user input.
Includes zoom in/out using mouse clicks, left and right,
scrolling with arrow keys,
and mouse x and y coordinates in graph.
Use 'enter', 'escape', or click on formula to enter input mode.

The starting graph is my personal favourite.

Any and all comments welcome.

@kiarocks, does it match your computers grapher now? (I made it so when the exponent was '1/2' or '1/3', it would use Math.sqrt or Math.cbrt, instead of using Math.pow(factor, exponent)).


Hi Dan, I'm a public schools teacher and I'd love to use this as a base in a c.s. course for 13th graders to implement some numeric methods like Newton's Method for finding roots. The green comment box states that it was uploaded with source, but there's no "open in greenfoot" and I can't find another way to download it (and I'm new here, so maybe I'm just missing something...). cheers, j


@joshbuhl, no. You are not missing anything. I did not think I had included to source to this at any time, but it does appear that I had. Do you need the code as well, or just the application?


For the application, if you can give me your e-mail address, I would be glad to forward it to you. If you do not wish to publicly show your e-mail address, click on my user picture, open my 'Private Messaging' scenario and supply it to me there. Then, post a note that you had done so, here.


Great! Iwould appreciate the source, since I would modify it. Be happy to post/send you the result, though. I've sent you a pm (how the heck does your app get the user data?!) Thanks! j


@danpost, the equation I tested a year ago (I can't believe how long I've been programming) works properly.


I am very interested in your program. Can you send me the source code Greenfoot? Thank you in advance. (
