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

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

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

Points of Interest

Points of interest

Tables

then select edit list

and choose convert to table

Tables

y = 1/x with table

Tables

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

Tables

y = 1/x with table – more values

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

Piece-wise Functions

### This year I will ....

Use technology more where it can enhance learning, eg for collabration.

Digital Tools

### This year I will ....

End my lessons well.

### This year I will ....

Use a greater variety of homework activities.

Homework Ideas

• Yes!
• Yes, very
• Definitely
• Yes, very helpful, especially if you are off
• Yes, very good for disorganised people (ie me) who always forget to write it down!

Homework Ideas

Homework Ideas

• Set some questions with solutions and mark schemes
• Revise and Recall
• Use Online Resources
• Vocabulary
• Reflective Writing
• Collaborate online
• Do two!

Homework Ideas

### This year I will ....

Give my students clear and frequent feedback.

FeedbackProgression

The most powerful single modification that enhances achievement is feedback.

The simplest prescription for improving education must be “dollops of feedback”.Hattie, J.A. (1992). Measuring the effects of schooling. Australian Journal of Education(see page 9).

“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.” ― Oscar Wilde

“Classic' - a book which people praise and don't read.” ― Mark Twain

Writing Things Down
• Gives you a permanent record
• Shows you are serious
• Makes you more accountable
• Helps you work things out

Sacha Chua - How to brain-dump what you know

Writing Things Down
• Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning:  I wanted to know what I was going to say.

Sharon O'Brien

• Writing is thinking on paper. William Zinsser
