Adding images into activities

I created an activity where students take a video of themselves tossing a ball. They are supposed to freeze the video when the ball is at the vertex of its path and then save and add the image to the graph on the activity. When students go to the “add” button to add their image the image option is not available. Is there a way to allow students to add their image or will this activity unfortunately not work?

I don’t believe students are able to add an image from the graph component in Activity Builder. You would need to have students send them to you prior to creating the activity, or if Activity Builder isn’t necessary, just upload the image to the Graphing Calculator.

Thanks. That’s what I have been having them do…upload their images to a student account in Desmos. The activity directions are in the Activity Builder, however, so kids have to go back and forth between the two. It would be nice if they were able to upload their image in Activity Builder…something to suggest. Thanks.


I agree, I’d definitely like to see this added to the Activity Builder.

I want students to be able to input an image as part of checking their understanding when work in another platform. Has this ability been added?

Students are now able to upload an image in Activity Builder as long as they are using the graph component in full screen mode. They use the same process as you would using the graphing calculator.

I’m trying to create an activity in which students can upload an image. I’m following what you said about using the graph component. When I run the student view, however, I’m missing the left panel with the “+” and ability to upload the picture. Am I not in full screen mode? How do I get this to work for students. Thanks.

Full screen mode for graphs means it is the only component on that slide. Adding a second component removes full screen capability.

Would it be possible for Desmos to add it in as a feature for students to be able to upload an image even if there are multiple components? I would like to have an option for one component to show students an equation, another component allow them to sketch their work to solve it by drawing on a graph that is set to blank, and a third component to upload a picture of the pencil/paper work if they prefer that over the drawing.
