1. ### Why is Desmos so insanely fast?

Why is Desmos (graphing calculator app for Android, ios, windows, etc) far faster than everything else in calculating? I've done the same calculations in Mathematica, Maple, hp prime pro app on windows (ios and Android), various calculator apps on ios and Android, etc This is one of the things...
2. ### Exploring the Behavior of Rotating Labels on Desmos: A Mathematical Perspective

In desmos you can rotate a label by going into the settings. BUT the rotations get weird with large numbers: if you rotate by 360 nothing happens same for 3600 and 360000 but when you get to 360000000000000000 it starts changing from just being flat. It changes from a 0 degree tilt to a 332 or...
3. ### Why doesn't Desmos show the X-intercept for non-linear equations?

Often in desmos when you graph a line it shows the X and Y-intercept with a grey dot. However when I graph something like sin(50)=5/x it doesn't show which I find odd because sin(x) does show the intercepts It only gets more complicated when graphing tangent and cosine. Both DO show the...
4. ### I Elliptic Function Rotation Problem

Hi all:) In my recent exploration of Elliptic Function, Curves and Motion I have come upon a handy equation for creating orbital motion. Essentially I construct a trigonometric function and use the max distance to foci as the boundary for my motion on the x-plane. When I plot a point rotating...
5. ### MHB Finding Slope with Desmos and Table

ok attemped to do this desmos but was sondering if there is away to get these slope in a 3rd column in the table with $m=\dfrac{\delta y}{\delta x}$
6. ### Transforming Y-axis table values into a separate formula?

Hey everyone, I have generated a nice little velocity vs time graph that I would love if somebody could help me put to use. I have marked data points on the x-axis for the Y-value for every second on the function. Just to be clear: X-axis = time in seconds & Y-axis = velocity in meters/second...
7. ### MHB Restricting Values in Desmos error (for a complicated parametric point).

Hello. I have graphed a rose curve on Desmos using a parametric point, the equation looking like this: However, I want the graph to be limited so that only values within the circle r=3.45 and r=9 are shown. I have tried using the curly brackets {3.45 <= r <= 9}, however this returns an error...
8. ### MHB Why is the point not on the endpoint of the line when graphing with Desmos?

ok why is the point not on the endpoint of the line?
9. ### B Demise of TI and the Rise of Desmos

Better stock up now as graphing calculators are becoming antiques just as slide rules did in the late 1970's. https://qz.com/977987/thanks-to-the-startup-desmos-the-reign-of-the-texas-instruments-100-graphing-calculator-in-schools-is-finally-ending/
10. ### MHB On desmos how do you plot y=3x as a polar equation

Derive $y=3x$ as a polar equation and plot it. ?
11. ### MHB Plotting a Polar Equation of a Circle on Desmos

The given is determine a polar equation for circle satisfying the given conditions: the radius is $2$, and the polar coordinates for the center are: $\left(4,0\right)$ I got ${r}^{2}-8r\cos\left({\theta}\right)=-12$ But when I try to plot this to DESMOS get nutin.
12. ### MHB Using desmos for Polar equations and the table feature

Just couldn't find help with this anywhere but Using the desmos graphing calculator using the table feature I wanted to plot the points every $\frac{\pi}{12}$ $0<\theta<2\pi$ For $r=-2-3\sin(\theta)$ On a polar coordinate graph
13. ### 30FPS displayed on a 200Hz monitor

Hello! I have a PAL TV, and that means it is best for footage of 25fps and 50fps The TV's refresh rate is 200Hz Well, my questions are: What happens if I play an NTSC file on the TV? (≈30fps), since it doesn't go well with 200Hz much (isn't a multiple)... I thought about how would the TV...
14. ### Desmos Graphing Calculator - Make Math Visual & Interactive

Hopefully everyone's heard of this by now, but for those who haven't, there's an excellent interactive online graphing calculator offered by Desmos: https://www.desmos.com/calculator
15. ### MHB Desmos: Formula input in Firefox

Is it just me or Desmos ruined its formula input? In the past when I typed x, /, 1, +, x I got $\frac{x}{1+x}$. Now I'm getting $\frac{x}{1}+x$. In fact, I can't figure out how to type $\frac{x}{1+x}$ at all. Even if I have $\frac{1}{1x}$ and the cursor is between 1 and $x$ in the denominator...
16. ### MHB Integrating Desmos Graphing Software with MHB

We are in the process of talking with www.desmos.com about how we can integrate their graphing software on MHB in an easy-to-use way, similar to the Wolfram Widgets (hopefully). In the meantime I recommend their website for graphing 2-d equations. It's very easy to use and in my opinion is...
