dynamic software adds
new dimensions to the Maths classroom!
See how Autograph
can be used with the South African Maths Curriculum
can the new Autograph software help teachers?
* Sketches, worksheets and exam
papers are simple -
Teachers can easily create and file their prepared work on computer.
Sketches, worksheets and exam papers can be edited for re-use.
Outstanding flash video tutorials quickly
show how to get started!
*Math concepts come alive with dynamic diagrams
plot all functions, including Trig and algebraic graphs,
Calculus, Analytical Geometry, Transformations, Geometry sketches,
Vectors, 3D Shapes, Statistical diagrams and tables, Probability
Distributions, Box and Whisker plots and more
more about Autograph features
* Scribble tool
Draw on the screen to emphasize shapes, points, lines of symmetry
and other features.
Erase scribbles afterwards - write and draw as if on a blackboard
do students benefit from using Autograph software?
* Slow plotting
Students can be involved in the graphing process:
they can track the function as it is plotted; pause
the plotting to examine eg turning points.
* Constant Controller
The general form of a function can be plotted using
constants. As they are changed, students can watch each change
affects the graph
*Autograph sketches can be saved to a Math
The file can then be manipulated directly in the web page without
the need for Autograph to be installed - eg students can vary
constants in a graph
Teachers can also -
Add graphics from any standard graphics file. Find real life
use best fit feature to overlay a graph - play with a photograph
of a stadium, or a moving ball, or a fountain.
* Hide or unhide any object
* Use dotted lines in any sketch
* Investigate Euclidean Geometry - measure
all angles - even reflex and obtuse; Show standard
right angle markings; This sketch shows a triangle
on the diameter of the circle, with chord parallel to radius
* Use the dynamic text box: the labels change as you
alter the position of objects in the sketch (including constants).
Brilliant for transformations!
Unbeatable for trig graphs!
