Quick and easy slope field in GSP 5




I just figured out how to make a slope field in Sketchpad.  When I've made similar constructions before, I've been unable to change the differential equation after the construction, and the files were sometimes pretty big.  My previous efforts used iteration and they were messy and time-consuming.  The locus/family of loci approach is easy, quick and (most importantly) adaptable.  You can easily paste the slope fields into Word documents for homework and tests.

  1. Many thanks, Mr. Burchell!
    I can't believe how easy it was to build this field!
