Mr. Bower creates many graphs for Algebra II using a program called GeoGebra. Would you like to use it? Click here to obtain a free copy of this Java-based program for Windows. Here is a link to the GeoGebra iPad app.

When you write exponents in GeoGebra, you will need to use the carat- it looks like ∧ and shares a key with the digit 6 at the top of your keyboard.

If you want to type in x³, you would type x∧3. If you want to type in (y−3)², you would type (y−3)∧2. When you press ENTER, the graph is displayed. You can use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out of your graph.
