Using Desmos for Physics (Part II)

Here is a variation on the Desmos graph I created in my last post. This graph is intended less as a demonstration and more as a student exercise. The five dots are moveable, and define the position curve. Then by clicking on the Speed circle at line 4 in the side panel, students can see the speed curve, which is the slope of the position curve. This is useful for students learning to read slope by focusing on key inflection points and trends.

Here's the link to this Desmos project:

You can minimize the panel on the left (click the "<<" symbol). You can also manipulate the right panel to change the viewpoint.
