Weaver, Dave; And Others – 1987
This report examines mathematical graphing utilities or function plotters for use in introductory algebra classes of more advanced courses. Each product selected for inclusion in this report is able to construct the graph of a given equation on the screen and serves as a utility which may be used by the student for an open-ended exploration of a…

Spikell, Mark A.; Deane, William R. – 1971
This paper discusses methods of sketching various types of algebraic functions from an analysis of the portions of the plane where the curve will be found and where it will not be found. The discussion is limited to rational functions. Methods and techniques presented are applicable to the secondary mathematics curriculum from algebra through…

Elk, Seymour B. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1997
Suggests that the cross product of two vectors can be more easily and accurately explained by starting from the perspective of dyadics because then the concept of vector multiplication has a simple geometrical picture that encompasses both the dot and cross products in any number of dimensions in terms of orthogonal unit vector components.

Austin, Joe Dan – School Science and Mathematics, 1979
Graphing techniques are used to demonstrate the inverse function theorem and that the graph of the inverse function can be obtained by flipping the graph about the line y=x. (MP)
