To enable students of calculus and precalculus to include auxiliary graphics conveniently in their graphs--and thereby reduce the potential for confusion and misinterpretation that can result from relying solely on a singular function's plot--it is important to have tools that generate auxiliary graphics in accordance with standard mathematical conventions. In this presentation, we describe three commands--RationalGraph, Graph, and Graph1D (synonym InequalityGraph)--that display the auxiliary graphics enhancements that are traditionally used when graphing functions with singularities and when graphing inequalities in one dimension. These commands make up the 'Graphing package.
