Combination of Transformations Desmos Activity
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This is an originally created Desmos activity. In this activity, students interact with different screens to perform a combination of transformations. Students will check their work and, upon revealing the answer, will not be able to change their answers. After checking their work, students will justify their creations.

Create Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

It is suggested that this activity be used once students have a deep understanding of parallel and perpendicular lines. Students will be given the equation of a line in various forms and based on that information, must drag points on a graph to create parallel and perpendicular lines. Initially students will not be shown the graph of the original line, but can obtain that hint if necessary. Once students submit their solutions on the graph, they can reveal the answer, but will no longer be able to adjust their work. This could be used as an assessment, especially during distance learning.

Given a Point and a Slope, Plot a Point
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

In this activity, students will be randomly assigned a point and a slope. They will use a movable point to plot a second point and receive visual feedback via animation as well as explicit written feedback about the slope of the line they created. All starting points and target slopes are generated randomly, so students in the class are not likely to get the same problems within a slide. They will all be practicing plotting points given a slope.

Graphing Given an Equation: Function Notation to Table to Graph
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This is an exploratory activity.  Students should have some prior knowledge of evaluating functions for given domain inputs using function notation.This lesson will walk students through using a table and plotting points.  By the end of the lesson students should walk away understanding that a line is infinitely many points.
