In this tutorial, we use a parametric grapher template and custom classes from our MathDL Flash Forum article Flash Tools for Developers (AS3): Graphing Curves on the Plane.  We show how to easily customize the appearance of the grapher using methods of the custom class GraphingBoard. The zipped folder below contains all the necessary files as well as a pdf guide, param_new_look.pdf, which will guide you through the tutorial. For your convenience the full documentation of the custom classes, including the custom math parser class, is in the folder, too.
