Gnuplot is a *free* GPL program for plotting graphs that works with 
Linux, Windows and OSX. one of its many benefits is its ability to plot 
mathematical functions. it is command line driven, and prints to a 
variety of formats. while it takes a small investment to learn the 
commands and scripts, the return from your investment is worth the effort.
