Below is a brief overview of some of the features
available to users of Autograph
See also "What's new in Autograph 3.3"

1D Statistics and probability

Data Sets and Groupings Data entered as either raw or grouped

Continuous or discrete data

Transform a data set

Dynamicly change class width on grouped data

Generate data from probability distributions

Representations of data

Histograms including frequency density

Cumulative Frequency diagrams

Box and whisker diagrams

Dot plots

Mean and three standard deviations

Line graph

Moving average

Stem and leaf

Statistics box with set size, mean, standard
deviation

Table of statistics and tabulated values

Operations with data sets

Measurments of histograms and cumulative frequency
diagrams Sample from data sets, demonstrating the central
limit theorem

Probability distributions

Plot and sample from

Rectangular (discrete or continuous)

Binomial

Poisson

Geometric

Normal

User defined, continuous or discrete

Measurments
and hypothesis tests fitting to data/ fit dependent

2D Graphing

Creation of interactive objects based on moveable
points.lines, vectors, conics, polynomials, shapes,
data sets.

Shapes and transformations

Shapes either from a set of points or from a list of
presets. Transformations including

stretches

shears

reflections

rotations

enlargements

translations

as well as arbitrary matrix transformations. Transformed
objects update as the original object changes and can
be chained. Rotations and enlargements can be animated,
changing the value of the parameter, as can matrix
transformations.

Vectors

Create as an interactive object using points or with
cartesian or polar coordinates. Vectors can be added,
subtracted, multiplied, duplicated, have the angle
between them found and can form the basis of straight
lines and translations.

Equations

One line true notation entry in explicit, implicit,
parametric, piecewise, and polar forms.

Slow plot allows you to draw curves incrementally, stopping at important points.

Calculus

Differentiate, find the area below a curve or between
two curves. Integration treated as a first order differential
equation.

Differential equations
First and second order solved. Plot slope field. Boundary conditions specified
interactively.

Numerical methods

Bisection solution. Newton Raphson method. Step forwards
and backwards.

Numerical integration.
Rectangle, trapesium and Simpson's methods. Animated the
number of divisions.

Tangents and normals

Plot tangents and normals to curves; evolute draws
these in many places along the curve, often leading
to striking shapes.

Scatter graphs

Data sets from points, files or entered through
Autograph's spreadsheet

Least squares regression graphically illustrated

Fit straight lines, polynomial or fit your own
equation to the data

Three dimensional graphing

Points as the basis of objects

Form objects including:

shapes

lines

vectors

planes

Shapes

Either form shapes from joined triangles or select
from a list of preset shapes

Transform shapes:

Rotations

Reflections

Enlargements

Translations

as well as arbitrary matrix transformations.

Lines and planes

Lines and planes from points, vectors or equations.
Intersection of:

Lines and planes

Two planes

Three planes

Vectors

Vectors created from points or entered in Cartesian
form. Add, subtract, copy, vector and scalar products.

Equations

Explicit, implicit, parametric, spherical and cylindrical
polars

Draw normals and tangets to surfaces and parametric curves Acceleration and velocity
vectors to parametric curves

Extra features for the
classroom

Customisability

Everything from the selection behaviour through the
backgrounds, behaviour of axes and thickness of the
lines to the layout of the toolbars

Interactive whiteboard friendly features

An on-screen keyboard allows you to enter equations
without returning to your computer.

The scribble tool lets you draw directly onto an Autograph page, avoiding the
layer system used by some manufacturers Many results are displayed in the status
bar; to make these more visible from a distance these can be duplicated in a
larger font in the status box. Whiteboard mode sets Autograph's preferences in
a way that is suitable for use with a data projector.

Instructions window

Leave instructions for pupils to follow embedded in
a saved Autograph file.
