" Desmos looks like a fun and useful rabbit hole, which is a bad thing on

Good description. I've found it most useful for a few classes: it makes it
very easy for students to do "what happens if I change this" work during
class. In the survey classes where business (and some other) students are
introduced to basic linear programming the animation feature allows
demonstrations of the objective function hitting a vertex as the final
point of a feasible region. Lots more to it, but is is an easy to use tool
with lots of flexibility.
