The function plotter is embedded tool that appears only when you are creating or editing a Plot page. The plotter appears below the body. You can plot 3 items simultaneously. These items could be functions, derivatives of functions or integrals of functions.

You can keep creating plot images, saving them and then inserting them in you text as and when needed in your notes. [Note that you can insert saved plot images in any of the content type you can create!]

Plot range and plot style for each of the 3 items can be set indepedently. Apart from display properties, you can choose different types of X- and Y-axis scales. You can also choose which quadrant to show.

The plot can be saved in 3 different image formats - GIF, JPG or PNG. The images are saved in your file-space under "plots" folder.

The following plot image has been created by plotting 3 functions -

  1. f(x) = cos(pi*x)/(-log(2)*x)
  2. g(x) = sqr(9-x^2)
  3. h(x) = - sqr(9-x^2)
