Also, it's better to manually animate the tangent lines by dragging the point or the slider!

Just a simple demo of the power of Desmos to build interactive Investigations for our math students.

My primary goal is to model the critical balance between technology and concept development. While students can freely explore the graphs, they are also guided with carefully crafted questions. Feel free to use it and modify as needed.

This activity can be improved upon with Desmos' New Activity Builder! As I learn it, I'll share more of these. See Desmos.com and on Twitter visit @Desmos and @mathhombre for more examples, many of which are far more creative than mine.

I did not realize that DESMOS could be used for more than a graphing calculator. For years I have recommend it to my students to use at home but never really used it myself. Seeing the discovery activity that you created on DESMOS has help me see that DESMOS can be used for so much more. I will be exploring DESMOS much further now that I have seen a sample of what it can do.
