A new Type of Graphing

A new Type of Graphing

December 4, 2011 in SMASHCast, Technology by

Today, we smashcasters were able to dive more into the pools of programming. First, a guest speaker presented his creation to us. This tool was called Desmos. We looked at his website and were then able to use the calculator he created. In a way, this program is like a google document for a calculator, except even better. Friends, students, and teachers can all have access to this calculator and use its many pages to create interesting graphs and images.

Today at SmashCast we got to use Desmos which is a virtual whiteboard. I got to try it out and I created a snowman by using equations and graphing them on a graph. I really enjoyed Desmos because of how easy and fun it is to use and I think it could help teachers teach students because everyone will be able to work at the same time in the same place so the teacher could monitor all the students and also display for everyone to see.I would recommend this tool to anyone who loves math and to any teacher who teaches any math related topic.

As of now, I own an iPhone 3GS, which is capable of recording videos and uploading them directly to YouTube (wifi makes it a lot faster). To get my video on a computer, I need the Apple USB cable to connect to my iPhone, then hook it up to (preferably) a Mac and sync it.
