4 Powerful iPad Graphic Calculator Apps for Math Teachers and Students

April 12, 2016
Below are some very good graphing calculators for math teachers and students. Learners can use these apps on their iPads to perform complex mathematical equations, plot graphs, and visualize math notations. For those of you looking for graphing calculators to use on Chrome, check out this page. Enjoy

1- Desmos Graphing Calculator

This is one of the most popular graphic calculator out there. Students can use it to ‘plot polar, cartesian, or parametric graphs; input and plot data; find best fit lines and parabolas; Adjust values interactively to build intuition, or animate any parameter to visualize its effect on the graph; type in any equation you want to solve and Desmos will show you the answer. It can handle square roots, logs, absolute value, and more.’

2- Quick Graph

‘It is a powerful, high quality, graphic calculator that takes full advantage of the multitouch display and the powerful graphic capabilities of the iPad and iPhone, both in 2D and 3D. A simple, yet intuitive interface that makes it easy to enter and/or edit equations and visualize them in mathematical notation.  It's capable of displaying explicit and implicit (opt) equations as well as inequalities (opt) in both 2D and 3D, in all standard coordinate systems: cartesian, polar, spherical and cylindrical, all with amazing speed and beautiful results, which can be copied, emailed or saved to the photo library.’

3- Good Grapher

This is another excellent scientific graphing calculator. Some of its features include: ‘carefully-designed graph visualization with multi-touch support; cartesian y(x) and x(y), polar r(θ) graphs (parametric x(t)y(t) and implicit in Pro version); inequalities drawing (in Pro version); function tracing and automatic min/max, zeros, intersections scanning for all function types; intersection discovering between different function types, e.g. between cartesian y=x and polar r=1; unlimited number of functions can be drawn simultaneously; standard, trigonometric and logarithmic axes; proportional and non-proportional scaling; customizable graph colors; table of graph values; copy, save, email screenshot…and many more.’

4- Scientific Graphing Calculator 2

This is an upgraded version of Scientific Graphing Calculator. It provides users with a set of powerful features including: a sophisticated keyboard with the ability to perform many functions, the ability to graph up to nine equations at once, a vector and matrix calculator, triangle and polynomial solvers, a unit converter and many more.
