draw a quick graph
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 Desmosy = 3x+2

learn about sliders
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

Learn about sliders

Now you have sliders

Try changing them and watch that graph!

y = mx+c

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

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

First enter your function

then select edit list

and choose convert to table

Tables

y = 1/x with table

slide52

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

y = 1/x with table

slide53

Tables

y = 1/x with table – more values

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
