Click where you would like to graph

The graphing system is handled in-line with the assignment text. When viewing your assignment, move the mouse cursor where you would like to place the graph and click in that area. Once you do this there should be a blinking line, known as the insertion point, indicating where you are about to type. 


Click the graph icon in the toolbar

Move the mouse to the toolbar above the text editor. In the top right of the toolbar there is a button with a graph image, click on it to enable the graphing utility. The graphing tool will appear automatically in the field to the right of your assignment.


Create your graph

Graph your results following the instructions, referring to the data you recorded in the Notes section.

Label your graph and axes

To properly format your graph, enter:

  • a title for your graph in the Title field
  • a label for the X axis
  • a label for the Y axis


Plot data

To plot your data, enter values into the fields in the data columns, with X values on the left, and Y values on the right. The graph on the right will automatically plot your data.

If you need more rows than initially provided, click Add Row at the bottom.


Show trendline

To show the trendline, click the box underneath the graph. The graphing utility will automatically calculate your slope and intercept. To remove the trendline, click the box again.
