I can use
Manipulate to create a grapher that emulates some of the functionality of a typical graphing calculator.By using
InputField as a control, the user can type in a function into the field and Mathematica will produce the graph on the fly.
Today I noticed that I can deploy this grapher as a
standalone CDF and it still works using the
CDF player alone. Then Mathematica does not need to be running.
I didn't realize this was possible. I was thinking of creating a grapher and then parking it as a standalone CDF in my dropbox. This would offer my students a free alternative to purchasing a physical
These are some questions in my mind:
- Is this plausible?
- Does a standalone CDF have enough power to be used a standalone functional graphing calculator with multiple controls that emulates buttons on a physical graphing calculator?
- Has anyone seen a decent standalone
I'm curious on whether its worth my time to build one.
