Abstract

Function Discovery Tool allows users to learn how to identify mathematical functions from plots of data as well as understand linearization of functions.

This tool provides users with a platform to generate plots for the following mathematical functions

  • Linear
  • Power
  • Exponential
  • Logarithmic

From plotting the graphs of the above functions, users will be able to visualize the behaviors of these curves, grasp the differences between the plots of each function, and learn to linearize these functions.
