Graphing calculators for your smartphone

Here are three options for free graphing calculators on your tablet or smart phone. If none of these are to your liking, just search the store for “graphing calculators”. The information below is based on the Android versions running on my tablet.

  1. Desmos (available for iOS and Android, as well as in browsers)
    • Basic functions are available on the main screen.
    • To get the third root, press “functions” -> “misc” and pick the nth root button. Then use 3 for n.
  2. GeoGebra (available for iOS and Android, as well as in browsers)
    • Basic functions are available on the main screen.
    • To get the third root, press “f(x)” and pick the nth root button. Then use 3 for the first blank.
  3. Wabbitemu (available for Android, as well as computer installation)
    • This allows you to load a calculator that works just like our class calculators! I would recommend this for tablets, but it’s probably too small for a phone.
    • Once you’ve installed and run the app, select “Help me create a ROM using open source software” and click “Next”.
    • Select “TI-84 Plus C SE” and click “Next”.
    • You can now touch buttons just like the class calculators.
