Have you ever used the Desmos graphing calculator? Have your students ever used it? Do you have the free Desmos graphing calculator app on your phone? Do your students have it? It's the best! I strongly encourage you to spend some time exploring Desmos. Where should you start? Go to learn.desmos.com and start exploring. I use Desmos regularly with both my 8th and 9th grade students and especially love the free and carefully crafted lessons available at teacher.desmos.com. One of my students' favorites is Marbleslides (pictured below). I dare you to click on that link and spend less than ten minutes playing with the marbleslides.
