•Greatly
improvedinterface including
Standard and Advanced level options; improved
graphics throughout, including Gradient fill
options

•Greatly
improved axes appearance (including
graph paper effect)

•Newly
commissioned web site
•Interactive Whiteboard facilities:
built-in scribble and rub-out tools, and a new on-screen keyboard
• Newly commissioned "Arial
for Autograph" true-type Unicode Font
including two useless keys put to work: ` => – (MINUS) and ¬ => × (MULTIPLY)
•Autograph "Extras" incorporated
into Autograph as "Flash" pages

•Edit: Unlimited
Undo and Redo, and select-all objects; eExpanded Preferences settings

•New
Modes toolbar, containing all the operational modes and zooms.

• The
Help File -now
nearly 300 pages long, presented in 'Flash', all inter-inked from each dialogue
box..

• Constant
Controller - This now allows multiple constant
animations to be set up and started at the same time;
can be all run from the on-screen keyboard

• Hide/View
Status Bar - in case not needed in the
classroom

• Standard
Level [previously 'Junior'] - snap setting (2D)
New toolbar options to set the 'snap' settings for points to 1 or 1/10

•Facility
to create "instructions window",
saved with current Autograph page.

•Autograph
Resources - associated application installed
with Autograph, contains Flash demos and other resources.

•NEW
WORDS: "Group" is now => "Shape",
and "Cursor" is now => "Point"

1D
STATISTICS

•Raw
data entry: greatly
improved - accepts column headers from Excel

•Grouped
data entry improved:
- new "include extra class" option (eg full marks)
- New "f-x" entry system for Grouped Data
- "Recalculate" options for class intervals and frequencies
improved.

•Line
Graphs and Moving Averages - from discrete grouped data
•Box
plots improved: - can contruct from just Min, Q1, Median, Q3 and max - can plot from raw data or from grouped data

•Data
types: Clear indication of "Raw", "Grouped" and "Grouped
with Raw" •Cumulative
Frequency Curve - improved fitting options •Autosale
and auto-label - on each first plot.

2D
GRAPHING
and
Coordinate
Geometry

•Vector
equation of a line - new top level object

•Shapes:
- selection now by clicking on the coloured area
- individual points in shapes can be dragged.
• plotting
improved
- including y = x^(a/b) to cope with negative indices when x < 0
- Startup options now allow control of domain
- Piecwise: now set to start of each then the final of the last one

• Maclauring
Series -
plotted dynamically
• Constructed
circle and any straight line selected
- Intersection points now found

• Point mode: Hold
CTRL for Intersections
- This will identify INTERSECTIONS (either f(x) = 0, or f(x) = g(x)

• 2D XY Data set dialogue
box:
- Improved pasting of data from Excel, including Column Headers
- Options to use headers as lebels, and to perform 'autoscale' on exit
- Residuals: new option "always square" when aspect is not equal

•3D Vectors
- sum, difference, scalar and vector products
- lines and planes derived from vectors

•3D Surfaces
- z = f(x,y)
- second degree equations (the cone and conic sections)
- general implicit plotting
- polar plotting: cylindrical and polar coordinates

•3D Parametric line
plotting
- x = f(t), y = f(t), z = f(t) full control over the parameter
- placing points on the line finds an intelligent value of 't'
- show velocity and acceleration vectors

•3D shapes
- enlargement, rotation (based on a point)
- reflection in a plane
- by 3x3 matrix
