Today we started with a quick crash-course in programming with Adobe Flash. We learned to setup variables and trace functions. Afterwards, the CEO of Desmos, which is an improvement of the TutorTrove program, introduced us to his new products: one, a graphing calculator that allows you to graph online and change different aspects of your functions. The second product was a Whiteboard where we could create graphs through functions. We used the Whiteboard and our knowledge about the manipulation of functions to create images such as ships, trees, and more abstract pieces of artwork. While I was experimenting I had the opportunity to create a house, attempted to draw a tree, and started a ship.
