Learning through discovery is always better than being told something – unless it involves something that causes pain. I learned about electricity when I was 4 years old by sticking a key into an electrical outlet. I had been told not to, but the lesson didn’t sink in until I tried it on my own.

Fortunately, the activity below is much more pleasant. My Algebra II class has been using Desmos as its go to graphing calculator all semester. I decided to try Desmos’ Activity Builder and created a companion worksheet so my students could jot some notes and we could use it for discussion points and follow up.

The companion worksheet is below. Happy Exploring!
