The 3D Equation Graphing Calculator is a Java calculator which simplifies, solves, and graphs equations in 3D. Before you use the 3D Equation Graphing Calculator, be sure to read over the following instructions/guidelines:
- Enter an equation to graph using the following instructions.
- To enter a variable or number with an exponent such as x2, use the ^ symbol to show that the following digits are an exponent. For example: 10x2y3 would become 10x^2y^3
You can get the ^ symbol by pressing the shift and the number 6 keys simultaneously.
- To enter multiplication use the * symbol (press shift and the number 8 keys simultaneously). When multiplying two polynomials in parentheses or a polynomial in parentheses and a term, the * is not necessary because the calculator will automatically know to multiply.
- When you are done entering an equation, click solve and graph. The calculator will automatically graph equations on a grid which extends from -100 to 100 on each axis(x,y, and z).
- To rotate the graph simply click your mouse on the graph and drag it left, right, up, or down. Zooming in or out has not been implemented at this time.
If you are confused, the calculator will show and solve an example equation. To do this, proceed to the calculator then click the example button. For more examples of how to enter equations into the calculator, click here.
This calculator is part of an old release of the equation calculator. A major
update to this calculator is being planned. Until that update takes place, this
calculator will not implement some of the features which are standard among the
newest calculators on algebrahelp.com. Further, this calculator is not subject
to regular updates and the same testing policies.
