Desmos- An Excellent Tool for Math Teachers

June, 2015
Desmos is a good platform for math teachers and students. Desmos is a graphing calculator that allows you to easily plot functions, create tables, add sliders, animate graphs and many more. Some of the features it provides to users include:



"Graphing:
 Plot polar, cartesian, or parametric graphs. There’s no limit to how many expressions you can graph at one time - and you don’t even need to enter expressions in y= form!

Sliders:
 Adjust values interactively to build intuition, or animate any parameter to visualize its effect on the graph

Tables:
 Input and plot data, or create an input-output table for any function

Statistics:
 Find best-fit lines, parabolas, and more.

Zooming:
 Scale the axes independently or at the same time with the pinch of two fingers, or edit the window size manually to get the perfect window.

Points of Interest:
Touch a curve to show maximums, minimums, and points of intersection. Tap the gray points of interest to see their coordinates. Hold and drag along a curve to see the coordinates change under your finger.

Scientific Calculator:
 Just type in any equation you want to solve and Desmos will show you the answer. It can handle square roots, logs, absolute value, and more.

Inequalities: 
Plot cartesian and polar inequalities"
