Transform Your Instruction with Desmos – Excite students with Meaningful Math Inquiry!

 

Are you looking for new ways to engage your learners and deepen content understanding with maths instruction? Desmos is a free graphing and teaching tool for math. Teachers can use Desmos to help students connect mathematical concepts to concrete, real-world shapes and pictures. Desmos encourages students to practice maths skills as well as play with maths to express their creativity. In addition to plotting equations, classroom activities are available to help students learn about a variety of maths concepts. Teachers will be able to begin creating their own lessons with Demos to take back to their classrooms!
