Welcome to Daily Desmos!
This site is inspired by a tweet from Dan Anderson, and the totally awesome desmos.com. I enjoyed solving Dan’s little challenge quite a bit, and was hungry for more. After a few tweets, it appeared that at least a few of the people I invited (What’s the Twitter equivalent for cold-calling?) were interested in creating more challenges similar to Dan’s. I offered to archive, Desmos said I could use their name in my blog title, and voila: the site is born.
With that as background, here’s the humble vision I have for this site:
- A handful of people (myself and hopefully a few others) will take turns creating Daily Desmos challenges. We can each take a day of the week to share the workload and encourage regular posting. (I’ll take Mondays.)
- The challenges will come via tweet consisting of an image of a function (graphed using Desmos) and the hashtag #DailyDesmos
- Each challenge will be classified as Basic, Advanced, or Extreme.
- I’ll archive every challenge within a day or two of its being tweeted by posting the image (and credit) on this blog.
- Anyone interested in “playing along” (the contributors, our own students, other teachers and students) can share their solutions by posting a link in the comments to a saved Desmos graph.
If you have comments, questions, bits of wisdom, interest in contributing, or just want to express your insatiable desire for a steady flow of Daily Desmos challenges… Get thee to the comments!
Once we have a small collection of challenges, I’ll explore the best way to tag the posts so teachers can access challenges related to specific functions, relations, topics, etc.
