FX Draw

Draw Mathematics

Powerful, yet easy-to-use, FX Draw provides a high-productivity drawing environment designed specifically for mathematics and science teachers. Quickly create editable, high-quality diagrams for tests, exams, worksheets, web sites, presentations and demonstrations.

FX Draw adapts itself to your needs, displaying exactly the tools YOU need as a mathematics or science teacher.

Draw Anything

FX Draw is the ultimate tool for drawing mathematics and science. Just about any graphic that a mathematics or science teacher will ever need can be drawn using FX Draw's highly specialized tools. FX Draw is incredibly efficient and versatile. Best of all, it is supported by people who have been in the classroom and know exactly what you need. With over eighty specialized tools, FX Draw makes drawing mathematics and science simple.

Spectacular Graphs

One of FX Draw's tools is the same graphing engine that you will find in FX Graph. This graphing tool can draw Cartesian functions, polar functions, slope fields, Argand diagrams, vector diagrams, 3D volumes of revolution, parametric relations, integrals, tangents and normals to curves and much more. Just remember that this is only one of FX Draw's tools!

So Much More

With specialized tools for drawing Venn diagrams, normal distribution curves, statistical graphs, tree diagrams, number lines bearings diagrams (and many more), you can always find the right tool to do the job. Check out the overview video and feature list below to see some more of the power of FX Draw.

Graphics Everywhere

FX Draw allows you to create graphics that can be placed just about anywhere. Our new Efofex Image ID system allows you to quickly edit graphics that you have created in just about any context. No matter which platform or product you prefer, FX Draw can draw what you need.

Trial Versions

These trial versions work in exactly the same way as the registered versions, they just overlay a watermark over all graphics. Logging in to the software with your account details turns them into full versions. Try out all of the features in FX Draw and FX Equation.

Take A Look

This short video will (very quickly) show you a small selection of the tools in FX Draw.

Feature List

  • FX Draw includes our full FX Equation product which makes equation entry as quick as typing.
  • For a full list of the features of the in-built equation system, visit the FX Equation page.

Function Graphs

  • FX Draw includes our full FX Graph graphing tool which allows you to quickly create and annotate any graph.
  • Quick, visual function entry system that allows you to simply type the function but shows you exactly how it is interpreting your entry.
  • Graph Cartesian functions, inverse functions, polar functions, parametric functions, implicitly defined functions, points, vectors, Argand diagrams, slope fields, piecewise defined functions, domains, inequations and feasible regions.
  • Show families of curves, demonstrate transformational graphing and create animations.
  • For a full list of the features of the function graphing tool, visit the FX Graph page.

Statistical Graphs

  • FX Draw includes our full FX Stat graphing tool which allows you to quickly create statistical data and graphs.
  • Create data sets which fit fifteen different probability functions, including time-series data and bivariate data. The data generators allow you to quickly create questions.
  • Automatically calculate summary statistics for data sets.
  • Graph raw data, grouped data and frequency tables.
  • Draw column graphs, bar graphs, pie graphs, box and whisker plots, cumulative frequency graphs, dot plots, stem and leaf diagrams, line graphs, frequency polygons, histograms, cumulative histograms, back-to-back histograms, divided bar graphs, scatterplots, residuals graphs, link graphs and triangle graphs.
  • For a full list of the features of the statistical graphing tool, visit the FX Stat page.

Specialized Mathematics Tools (for FX Math Tools license holders)

  • Bearings diagram tool.
  • Normal distribution drawing tool.
  • Number line tool. Vertical and horizontal numbers. Draw x = a, x > a, x < a, x <= a, x >= a and x <> a.
  • Two and three circle Venn diagrams with easy shading of regions.
  • Graph paper tool. Create Cartesian, isometric, hexagonal and polar grids and dot papers. Create log and log/log papers.
