Graphing Functionality Now Available on Google Search
Google recently introduced graphing functionality on their search engine.
Google engineer and self-proclaimed “Math Lover” Adi Avidor writes on the Google Search blog:
Now you can plot mathematical functions right on the search result page. Just type in a function and you’ll see an interactive graph on the top of the search results page.
You can zoom in and out and pan across the plane to explore the function in more detail. You can also draw multiple functions by separating them with commas. This feature covers an extensive range of single variable functions including trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic and their compositions, and is available in modern browsers.
I hope students and math lovers around the world find this experience as magical as I found the graphing calculator so long ago.
