3DXplorMath This is a Mac OS X program for creating all sorts of math graphs. This program is very versatile (and a little overwhelming). It can graph 2D (including polar, parametric, and implicitly defined funcions) and 3D. Click on all the pull-down menus to see what your options are, or even better if you have the time, read the manual.
