Teaching With Desmos Activities

I've never really considered writing a blog post about Desmos.com because I figured people would just go to their site to learn.  But it might be beneficial to see how other teachers are using it.


Yesterday I gave my Algebra 1 students a test on graphing with slope-intercept.  The averages of the classes were 75% for the one class and 65% for the other class.  Clearly, they weren't ready for the test.  I decided that this topic is too important to ignore so we are re-learning and re-assessing on the topic.

This is a link to the desmos activity.  

**Note**  Be prepared for inappropriate drawings on the activity.  Period 3 thought it would be funny to draw a penis for all to see. ((sigh))
