Enhancing Virtual Math Lessons with Desmos

January 23, 2021

In this session, teachers will learn how to use Desmos, a free digital platform for creating interactive math lessons, from both the teacher and the student perspective. Teachers will engage in an investigative, problem-based Desmos lesson and then learn about the Activity Builder features to search from pre-made lessons and/or build their own. Teachers will design multiple types of screens including interactive graphs, tables, choice and checkboxes, open ended, card sorts, and more and know how to deliver them with students using the Teacher Dashboard.
