## CHAPTER 2Two-DimensionalGraphics

Mathematica can be used to draw beautiful pictures that make it easy to visualize complicated curves, surfaces, data sets, or other shapes. In this chapter we’ll focus on two-dimensional graphics. In Chap. 6 we’ll introduce tools to display three-dimensional objects.

### 2.1 The Plot Function

One of the most fundamental and useful graphics tools is the Plot function which can be used to draw the graph of a function. Here is a simple example.
