Last week one of our math teachers asked me about a tool that could graph an equation and then superimpose that graph over an image. I didn't know of one, but I did a little research using my newly minted Advanced Power Searching credential. Several searches and video tutorials later, I think I found a solution. Here's the video.
As I mentioned in my previous post, the first thing I do in class is have my students write and deliver two minute introductions. Obviously it gives me a sense of their writing and presentation skills, but more importantly it allows me to know who they are. Here's the prompt I give them: Your first formal assignment is to compose and present a short introduction so I may better get to know you. I'm only looking for a two minute introduction. I would like you to type it out and then read it to the class. Make sure you save your work somewhere because I'm going to ask you to post it in your portfolio (more on that later). I'd like to get a sense of who you are and what your voice is. Not sure what to write? No problem ... here are some ideas to help get you started: What are you passionate about? What are some of your goals for the year? For your life? What is the most important physical object in your life? (take a photo of it and bring it to class) What is y
Ingenious method, using Desmos, but perhaps your maths teacher colleague might like to investigate GeoGebra at https://www.geogebra.org/cms/. It's open-source; can be down-loaded or web-based; they're developing a Google Chrome app version... and there is a great community who will give support through the forum. There's a vast repository of resources at http://www.geogebratube.org/?lang=en. It's really easy to insert an image and superimpose a graph.ReplyDelete
Awesome! I'll pass that on. Thanks for sharing, Kathryn.ReplyDelete
