Update: I turned this into a Desmos Activity Builder which you can find here.
Semester 2 begins on Monday and I want to do something interesting with my 2 calculus & vectors classes. I thought it would be good to have them "play" in Desmos for a class. I want them to have fun but for the work to be meaningful so this is what I came up with, very much in the spirit of Daily Desmos (which I have not contributed to for ages :(). I will randomly pair them up and have them recreate as much as they can of this:
Here is a picture of it in case you can't see the video:
They should all be able to correctly determine the equations of the curves, but the animation will be a much bigger challenge for them. I want them to see what is possible with Desmos, yet still within their reach.
I would love your feedback!
