An interactive iPad app for graphing circles, ellipses, parabolas and hyperbolas
Are you interested in learning about graphing common geometrical equations? Do you have trouble remembering the formula for a circle, ellipse, parabola or hyperbola? This iPad app allows you to interact with these equations in a dynamic intuitive way. Use sliders to dynamically modify the formula's and see the graph update to reflect your changes. Got it down pat? Try the Quiz Me mode and to answer questions about your formula by touching the right point on the graph. Need a hint? Switch back to the Show Me mode or bring up the list of point values.

Ratings and Reviews
Great but glitchy
I love this app! It's a great tool for letting students discover conics and how they shift. It's a great teaching tool!
However, it crashes a lot and many students aren't able to use the app without it crashing often, many times immediately, making it difficult or impossible to use.
I wouldn't have any complaints at all if it would just stay open!
Great, but could be better
This is an amazing app. It is very helpful and though I've not tried all of the features yet it seems promising so far. Instead of scroll bars for adjusting the m and b in a line though, it would be easier to have a way to input a number so you don't have to scroll accurately down the the tenths place. Otherwise I would recommend this app if you like to do algebra on a device!
Great Educational Tool
My Algebra students used this app for a graphing lab where they were to discover what the slope and y-intercept letters did to a line graph. We also used the parabola function as well. The kids really enjoyed the lab! I would recommend this for any teacher that would like their students to investigate and learn for themselves.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
