In Desmos, you can plot points one at a time, a few on a line, or all in a table, whichever you prefer. To create a movable point, use parameters instead of numerical coordinates, like this: (h, k). Better still, link existing points to other mathematical objects (like the vertex of a parabola, the center of an ellipse, or the y-intercept of a line). Get started with the video on the right, then dive deeper with the resources and challenges below.
