Graphing program question

Can anyone suggest a good method of graphing data that will fall outside the range of the X and Y resolution of my window?

Let's say I had a parabola with x and y values over 2000. How could I put that in an X/Y coordinate system in a window that is only 300x300 using the drawLine() for each point? I have tried some division to scale it down, but I don't quite get the results I want.

Well, what results do you get? Scaling down by a factor would be the approach to take. Maybe you can post a snippet of code that shows what you're doing, and describe for us what you were expecting, and what you are actually observing.
