From the text: In this article we look at some fairly simple, yet not widely known techniques in order to develop an easytouse Excel spreadsheet that produces the graph of an arbitrary function $y=f(x)$ on any desired interval $[a,b]$. This therefore introduces mathematics teachers to some of Excel's most sophisticated capabilities that can be utilized in many other ways.
