April 20 Day 43: Whiteboarding it

Today I had a positive interaction with my precalculus students and the shared whiteboard in Zoom. We were using transformations to graph basic functions. Starting with a simple power function, they individually contributed by computing points, plotting them on the axes provided, and connecting the dots. The same process was repeated with a related but transformed function. Hearts for the points of the former, stars for the points of the latter. It may look a little messy but it sounded to me like there was joy and wonder interacting in a new way online.
