WHY AUTOGRAPH?

Why is Autograph different?

Autograph is widely used by teachers and students on PCs and Macs, in the UK and many other countries of the world, and a version for IOS and Android tablets is well under way.

Autograph can help to visualise key concepts through dynamic objects, with a straightforward and friendly user interface.

Autograph has been localised in 21 languages (including Arabic).

There are fabulous resources online (videos, data, images, tutorials) and files can be saved straight to HTML for viewing on the web.

AUTOGRAPH for 11-16 year olds



This session will cover graphing topics for the younger students. The interface gives users time to explore and investigate using a controllable 'slow plot' feature, and animations are particularly effective because of the ability to control the step in real time.

Topics will include the transformations of shapes and function, fitting mathematically interesting images, and some elementary data handling.

The tablet version is under development, but this will be an opportunity for a sneak preview of this exciting new 'Cloud-based' Autograph.






AUTOGRAPH for 16-19 year olds

 

With more advanced material, the possibilities for using controllable dependent objects are more effective.

We will explore 2D topics from simple geometry to advanced functions, and 3D topics: transformations of shapes to surfaces, lines, planes, and volumes of revolutuion.

Autograph is also particularly effective in the teaching of probability and statistics topics using real data.

Discrete and continuous probability distributions can be explored, together with the creation of large data sets.
