  • View graphical, algebraic, numeric, geometric, and written formats
  • Grasp mathematical concepts more easily through multiple and linking representations
  • Recognize how different concepts are linked by watching how a change in one representation appears in others
  • Work with the calculator menu, tools, forms, and variables
  • Create documents, add problems, configure page layout, and save your work for assignments or class notes
  • Use the graphing functions in the analytic view and work with geometric objects in the plane geometry view
  • Create and manage lists and spreadsheets and use this application with others for statistical calculations
