Workshop Video Link
Desmos is an online application which allows students to interact, inquire and investigate new concepts. Desmos classroom activities provide an opportunity for students to explore and represent their ideas through sketches, graphs, lists, multiple choice, and more. Learn how to edit existing activities, build your own from scratch and collaborate with colleagues to create coherent lesson sequences that promote higher order thinking skills such as reasoning and justification.
