There are two hyperbolic functions commonly presented in Biochemistry classes. Both of these functions, the Michaelis-Menten enzyme activity curve and the Scatchard ligand binding isotherm, are routinely re-expressed using a linear transform in order to determine the rate and binding constants inherent in each model. We will demonstrate how these transforms, when presented in GeoGebra, make useful and interactive teaching tools.
