Windows’s default calculator app had been quite standard in previous Windows versions. It was frankly unusable. Microsoft has decided to significantly upgrade the calculator app within Windows 11.
New features were added to the program, including a scientific calculator, programming functions and many more. One such feature is a graphing tool that gives standard graphing tools on the market like Texas Instruments a challenge.
This article will show you how to open the Windows 11 graphic calculator, how to graph in and out functions and how to use it to find values on the graph.
Open the graphing calculator by clicking the Start menu, and then type in “calculator” into the search field. Select the Calculator app.
The standard calculator will now open. You won’t even notice that the standard calculator app isn’t the same unless you choose the menu in the upper right App for Windows 10 old calculator.
You’ll be able to see every option available when you choose the menu Advanced calculator features .
Select the link to access the graphing calculator Graphing Select the option from the menu. In the same window, you will see the graphing calculator. You won’t see the graph unless the toggle button in the upper left switches the display between equation and calculator graphing modes.
You can use the graphing calculator in a more efficient way by resizing the window so that both the graphing area as well the equation editor are displayed side-by-side within the same window.
You are now ready to start using this Windows 11 graphing calculator.
Let’s start by looking at a simple quadratic formula to demonstrate the operation of graphing calculator: y = x² + 2.
This formula should be entered into the Enter an expression Pick the blue option from the drop-down menu Enter button. This will display the graph in the left pane above the x/y-axes.
The whole purpose of graphing calculators is to allow you to solve for different values of x. You can then trace the graph using your cursor and see the values such as the “y-intercept” (when x is 0).
The graphing calculator can be used to modify variables and then see the effect on the graph. These tools are essential for students learning algebra. They help them understand how the different elements in a function impact on output results.
One good example of this is the linear function y = mx + b. . This is the function students use to first understand the relationship between the variable and the slope or position of each line.
Enter the function in another form and hit the blue button Enter Use the button below to draw it.
It is possible that you don’t get the graph centered on your display. The following can be used: + and – To zoom in or out, use the buttons found at the lower left corner of the chart. For a more fluid display of the data, click and drag left to move the mouse in any area.
The graph options icon is located in the upper left corner of the chart. This will allow you to change the min and maximum values for x, y. You can also adjust the size of the chart’s display by clicking this icon.
It is also possible to adjust the units between Radians and Degrees.
After your graph has been centered, you can manipulate variables to alter the output. You can now see the results linear function The expression above contains two variables: m and. You can scroll down with the scroll bar at the right of the expressions to see a section that shows these variables. This section shows the graphing calculator’s assumptions regarding what these variables should be to chart them.
You can adjust the b Variable in the linear functio.
You can adjust the m Variables are also possible. This will show you that a linear equation can increase or decrease its slope.
Select the link to view more information about each expression Analyze function Click the icon below the expression.
This will allow the graphing calculator to analyze the expression you have chosen and give important information such as the x-intercept and y-intercept.
Simply select the “Remove” button to delete any expressions entered into the calculator Remove equation Click the icon at the top of your equation.
The graphing calculator will then remove both the equations and graphs.
Use the Function Use the dropdown menu to add things like absolute values.
Use the Trigonometry Dropdown menu to add sin, cosine and tangent in your expressio.
This can be used to your advantage Inequalities Dropdown for chart expressions that use an equality sign as the inequality. You will see this on your graph by shading either below or over the region of your chart that indicates inequality.
After you have created the graph or graphs, you can click the share icon at the upper right of the graphing area to email a copy to others.
The list of options you see will change depending on which Windows software is installed. Email will be the typical choice. However, this list will also include email if you use other apps such as OneNote, Facebook or any other communication app.
