Here is a link for GeoGebra
, a software you can use for 3D graphs. I have the GeoGebra Classic, version 5 on my computer. Version 6 (for which there are apps as well) should be at least as good. To start the 3D capability, choose 3D Graphics, from the main menu, then input the function or equation you'd like to graph. It is possible to zoom in, zoom out, rotate graphs (use last icon on top), find intersections, etc.
I still want you to recognize graphs of basic functions without the help of software.
