So long, TI-83. Hello, iPhone.
If you had to take pre-calculus or any other type of applied math in high school, you likely needed a graphing calculator, and if you’re into any of that in college or university, you’re really going to need a graphing calculator. Some of them can be annoyingly expensive, though, so a handy graphing calculator app for iPhone or iPad is much more worth it.
Here are the best apps for you to inevitable just play the worm game on (is that still a thing?).
Free Graphing Calculator
What better word is there than “free”? This graphing calculator app has over 4 million downloads and maintains a 4.5-star rating with nearly 3,000 reviews.
It’s a robust app that lets you perform all manner of calculations, and it can graph up to four equations at once, meaning you can bang out your homework in a jiff (each graph is even labeled)! You can graph in polar coordinates, graph parametric equations, implicit functions, and much, much more.
If you’re looking for a completely free solution to your graphing calculator needs, this is certainly the app to go with. (You can get rid of ads for 99 cents if you so choose.)
Desmos Graphing Calculator
Desmos Graphing Calculator is another free app that has a full-featured set of graphing options. You can plot polar, cartesian, and parametric graphs, and there’s no limit to the number of expressions you can graph simultaneously.
The convenient sliders let you adjust values on the fly, so you can see animated parameters to see how it affects the graph.
If you’re looking for an intuitive graphing calculator that does perhaps far more than you could ever ask of it,…
