Users can create accounts and save the graphs and plots that they have created to them. A permalink can then be generated which allow users to share their graphs and elect to be considered for staff picks. The tool comes pre-programmed with 35 different example graphs for the purpose of teaching new users about the tool and the mathematics involved.
A modified version of the calculator has been used in standardized tests, such as the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness test. Moreover, activity modules for classrooms can be created through a teacher account.
