Excel does offer excellent graphing possibilities.

If it's got to be free, try Open Office. It's a suite of programs that closely mirrors Microsoft Office, including an Excel-like spreadsheet, but is free to download.

If it's serious 'graphs from functions' that you need, you'll have to google what you want and see if anything really fits your bill.

OpenOffice is very good free alternative to MS Office. If it is mathematical plots you are after (in a mathematical sense graphs are different to plots) then gnuplot, Octave (an open source version if MATLAB), Wolfram Alpha and Paraview all do the job and they are free. If you are a Mac user, there is grapher that is shipped with every Mac that produces beautiful graphs.

I use OpenOffice.org at home. It is compatible with any existing Microsoft Office documents you may have, too.

I'm very fortunate in that I get to buy the latest version of MS Office for just over £8 via a partnership deal we have through work.

There are a few minor differences from Excel (I think semi-colons are used as parameter separators instead of the commas used in Excel?) but there is comprehensive help available from the menu bar.

I did find the ranges a bit tricky to set or reset when graphing, but I worked it out in the end. Like everything, practice makes perfect.
