Most of the functions we look at in high school math are continuous everywhere they are defined. But not always. Graphing piecewise functions with software requires defining the function on distinct intervals. Grapher (on the Mac) provides a nice facility … Continue reading

Mathematica, WolframAlpha, and Grapher provide tools for solving differential equations. But you don't get to see what's happening under the hood. Differential equations often don't have a tidy closed form solution, and a numerical method is needed. Euler's method requires … Continue reading

If you are manually graphing slope fields, here are some scalable graphics: Slope field, grid Slope field, grid You can plot slope fields with a solution to the differential equation in Grapher (Mac only). If you haven't used Grapher, it … Continue reading
