How I Use It
I Personally use Desmos for creating graphs for presentations, tests, notes and for checking MY work. I also have lesson plans for Algebra I and Algebra 2 that starts with parent graphs and than add information to equations to shift the equations.
My Take
This is a great teaching tool. Paper and pencil graphs are great, don't get me wrong, but this is great to quickly see the graphs and to change them at will and see what happens.
