ALGEBRA ACTIVITIES
I used most of the activities in the Linear Bundle and the Quadratic Bundle with my Algebra 2 students.
Land the Plane appears in the "Linear Bundle."
Marbleslides: Parabolas appears in the "Quadratic Bundle."
Marbleslides: Lines (Marble Slides are a classic Desmos activity. You can create your own.)
This Desmos activity could be used anytime after Linear Equations are introduced.
Card Sort: Modeling (Card Sorts are a classic Desmos activity. You can create your own.)
Transformations Game (Explorer)
Smiley Face Transformations
Sample Student Work: Smiley Face Transformations
Sine Wave Transformations
Create a parabola to fit a Roller Coaster
