About WebGraphing.com

There is a substantial research literature that suggests learning in mathematics can be achieved by reading worked-out examples. WebGraphing.com goes one step further: it strives to jump-start students to learn mathematics by reading worked-out examples of their own choosing.

Unlike other web sites dedicated to mathematics, WebGraphing.com delivers real-time, step-by-step answers to challenging mathematics problems. There are a number of unique, patented features that make our calculators easier to use and more powerful than other graphing calculators. In comparison, our calculators take more of the grunt work out of demanding computations that contribute very little either to student learning or teacher productivity.

WebGraphing.com began operations in 2003. On average, we receive over 8,000 daily visitors from over 100 countries. We currently have over 150,000 members comprised of students, teachers and parents. This represents a lot of learning of mathematics, checking answers, copying publication-quality graphs, and mathematics exploration.



WebGraphing.com
is the brainchild of Barry Cherkas (also known as pskinner on the Forum), a Professor of Mathematics holding a joint faculty appointment with the Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Hunter College and the Ph.D. Program in Urban Education at the City University of New York Graduate Center.

Professor Cherkas has received numerous grants and written many articles in mathematics and mathematics education, including an article related to graphing: “Finding polynomial and rational function turning points in precalculus,” which appeared in the International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, Vol. 8, No. 2, 2003, 215-234 Computer Math Snapshots Section. He has also written a book on using technology to learn precalculus: “Precalculus: Anticipating Calculus Using Mathematica® Labs,” 2002, Jamaica, New York: Euler Press. More recently, he is a coauthor (with Dr. Rachael Welder) of the chapter Interactive Web-based Tools for Learning Mathematics: Best Practices appearing in the 2011 IGI Global publication, Teaching Mathematics Online: Emergent Technologies and Methodologies (edited by Dr. Angel A. Juan, Maria A. Hertas, Sven Trenholm and Cristina Steegman.)

Professor Cherkas welcomes any feedback and suggestions through the contact form.
