Desmos was originally a free online graphing calculator, but now also provides classroom activities that help students focus on the math, not the tool. Desmos classroom activities have been designed to invite students to think mathematically, and link to a wide range of learning standards. At this workshop, you will learn how to incorporate Desmos into your classroom, explore free activities, and learn how to build your own custom Desmos activities for your classroom.
