Lots of Desmos this week. This one is one that I finished to have kids learn about subtracting integers. In it they start by turning a subtraction question into an addition question and then use a numberline to get the answer. Finally on the last slide students get a chance to try out a bunch of randomly generated problems.

This looks fun for practicing adding polynomials. In this case @DpScher has created some dynamic crossword puzzles that are like Soduku for polynomials. After seeing this you could probably see that it would be a simple activity to have students create their own puzzles.

It might not be as interactive as the Desmos Palmagraphit but it still might help students get a handle on scatterplots and graphing points.
