  43. 43. Dancing with Desmos
  44. 44. Draw a quick graph Suppose you want a graph of y = 3x+2 Simply go to Desmos and type in your function That’s it – one graph! Learning to use Desmos y = 3x+2
  45. 45. Learn about sliders Now suppose you want to explore straight line graphs. Simply go to Desmos and type in your function but this time use variables: You will be offered the chance to add sliders – select all
  46. 46. Learn about sliders y = mx+c Now you have sliders Try changing them and watch that graph!
  47. 47. Learn about sliders If you want a slider to have integer values only, select one of the end points: then you could make the step size 1 for integer values and also change the lowest and highest values if you want y = mx+c try changing the sliders
  48. 48. Learn about sliders If you want a slider to have integer values only, select one of the end points: then you could make the step size 1 for integer values and also change the lowest and highest values if you want y=mx+c, m and c integers
  49. 49. Points of Interest Points of interest

  51. 51. Tables y = 1/x with table
  52. 52. Tables y = 1/x with table Now try changing the table: Change the first value of x Delete the other rows Enter a second value of x ....then keep pressing enter
  53. 53. Tables y = 1/x with table – more values
  54. 54. Settings Try changing the x and y axes Uncheck Equalize Axis Scales for more control over the axis settings Experiment with the three show settings to see what happens Try changing the axes for the quadratic function in the link below Quadratic - try changing axes
