Autograph has three secret weapons to give you complete control.
Getting Going with Autograph
If you'd prefer to concentrate on learning your way around Autograph's interface, then here's a good video about the Standard Level of operation for starters, and some excellent Getting Going videos at the start of the Autograph Video Tutorial series here.
Now you can bring maths to life with photos and images as your background. Import any graphic image, adjust the opacity so you can see your graphed model clearly, and fit functions to natural phenomena - whether it be fitting a quartic through five points to find the equation of an arch, or the trajectory of a projectile, or geometric features of architecture. A great way to relate maths to real world phenomena and engage attention. In Autograph 3.3, image handling has been improved: you can paste or drag image files into Autograph, and you can drag images straight off Firefox pages.
Geometry has been expanded, with new angle measurement tools and marking. Text annotation is now dynamic too. There's a dockable results box, tabbed workspaces and a redesigned and expanded Help and Training system and more! In Autograph 3.3, many of the routines have been fine-tuned and operation is smoother.
There is a superb new "Save to Web" facility. Autograph activites can be quickly created and saved to HTML (eg for use in a VLE or Wiki). Anyone opening such an activity for the first time in Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari will automatuically download the Autograph Player (which is installed anyway for all Autograph users).
All six 'Extras' have been completely re-written in stunning "Flash".
The multi-lingual interface has been extended to 18 languages, including the world's first true right-to-left Arabic notation.
The use of Autograph on Thin Client systems has been enabled.
Autograph is now activated online, enabling the smooth continuation of use for trial users, and greatly simplifying the process of delivering the software to students on the popular Extended Licence.
It is understood that many will want to take the opportunity to upgrade their licence to the popular Extended Licence to take advantage of the online activation.
Autograph 3.3 on the Mac
Download the Mac free trial. Autograph 3.3 now runs seamlessly on all Intel-based Apple Mac computers, including Mountain Lion. All the features of the PC version have been implemented (*) and AGG files will be fully interchangeable between the two systems.
Where possible the Mac interface has been adopted, so Ctrl-Click gives a Right-Click. The CTRL key is otherwise affected by the APPLE (command) key/
(*) The Save to Web feature has only been partially
implemented for MAC browsers; however this feature will
be fully available in a future release of the MAC version.
