** Autograph
Version ****3.3**
dynamic software adds
new dimensions to the Maths classroom!
**See how Autograph
can be used with the South African Maths Curriculum**
**How
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 … Find out
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
**How
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****
web page**
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 -**
***Import graphics **
Add graphics from any standard graphics file. Find real life
pictures, and
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!
