Free Graphing Software

"Grapher" is a free graphing program that is included with newer Mac operating systems.  It's in the Utilities folder.  It's very powerful, but a little tricky to use.  The "Examples" and "Help" menus are helpful and there is some information available online.

"WinPlot" -- An excellent Windows OS graphing program. A guide for using WinPlot is available.

Web Page Function Grapher

Desmos Calculator - Graphs functions in rectangular or polar coordinates.

Java Grapher works within your browser. To enter a function, don't type "y = " or "f(x) = "; just type the function's formula. There is no "Print" feature. If you want to print a graph, you'll first have to do a "Screen Capture" or a "Print Screen." Fairly fast and very convenient.
