Reflection: Adaptive Technology Equations on a Graphing Calculator - Section 2: Investigation


Recently, I've been introducing students to and instead of using graphing calculators. I'm curious about how this changes and/or affects students experience in graphing. Desmos still requires students to determine a viewing window, which I think is an important skill in using technology to graph., however, will determine the viewing window for the student which is a saving grace for some students.  I think it's interesting to think about how and when we let the technology do the work for students and when we require them to do it themselves or by hand.

Equations on a Graphing Calculator

Unit 2: Multiple Representations: Situations, Tables, Graphs, and Equations
Lesson 11 of 17

Objective: SWBAT graph linear and non linear equations on a graphing calculator. SWBAT set appropriate viewing windows and use the trace feature to identify different points on the lines.

Big Idea: You mean I didn't have to make this graph by hand? Students learn how to use graphing calculators to graph linear and nonlinear functions.
