Dancing with Desmos

Have you noticed the option to add an image to a Desmos graph?

Editing a graph page recently I noticed you can add an image…

Clearly I had to experiment with this facility, so remembering the beautiful dance moves poster I thought I’d see how accurate it is!

Desmos & Images

Desmos & Images – select the image for graph page

The modulus function looks pretty good – as does the circle (though it really should not be labelled just x2+y2)

Anyway – upload an image – save your page and challenge your students to fit a graph!

Remembering a holiday in Barcelona – I thought I would add the graph of cosh x to this photo.. Select the image to see the Desmos graph page.

An update – thank you @Desmos – love this!

Note the use of the drop down menu in each section.

And for a little more mathematical dancing – can you dance the Bubble Sort?
