Before we go any further, I should probably warn you about my philosophy on graphing:
|PLOTTING POINTS IS FOR SISSIES!
That's right. I said it. The official definition of a "sissy" is a weak or feeble person... and, if you try to graph something like a parabola by making one of those pathetic x-y charts
and making guesses... then you are a big sissy! Real geeks graph with their brains because they know what they're doing. It takes a heck of a lot less time and it's more accurate. I once saw a Calculus teacher draw a complete blank and try to graph a parabola by plotting points... It got ugly fast. Don't let this happen to you!
There is a lot of graphing in the first semester of Calculus... A LOT!
