the functions are: abs, sqrt, ln, sin, asin, cos, acos, tan, atan. The
first variable in an equation is the variable that will be used for the
equation. The Graphing XMIN and XMAX can also be changed
in this screen.
button enters a screen which allows the user to evaluate the equations
for given values.
The Points button enters a screen where points
can be placed on the graph. Entering x, y pairs or a single mouse click
on the graph screen will deposit/remove points as long as the points window
The Round button will round the displayed
values to a proportion of the current scale. First round simply rounds

The Home button repositions
the x and y axis to -10 to 10.
A mouse double click
on the graph screen centers on that point.
A mouse single click on the graph screen gives the
x, y coordinates of the point.
A mouse click and drag on the graph screen will
do a window zoom.
The min, max, and scale values
can be changed. The scale and either min or max can be changed. The other,
max or min, is recalculated through scale.
Vertical asymptotes appear but need some work.
