How I Use It
This product is excellent for demonstrating the parts of equations and what can be done to manipulate them, such as what makes the graph expand? stretch? flip? rotate? What does sin look like? cosine? tangent? etc. It worked very well for teaching basic equations, for teaching what the graph looks like in relation to each equation. This site aids students with graph identification and recognition.
My Take
This product is simple, easy, and accessible to all students. It is free and can be accessed at home to help students with homework and studying, as well as during class for class discussion and class content exploration. This site is great for teaching introduction to Calculus, specifically.
