Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
It's tough to give instant feedback or to craft a lesson where students discover new vocabulary, math, or science. Wouldn't it be great to have a resource for that? For free? Come explore Desmos, find pre-built activities, and discuss instructional shifts, then leave with next steps to improve your pedagogy.

Learning Outcome #1
TWBAT: Borrow and manipulate graphs and activities

Learning Outcome #2
TWBAT: Apply them to classroom use

Standards for Mathematical Practices #6: Attend to precision All Desmos tools begin with low-floor (every student can start somewhere) and generate a need for specificity as students proceed through the activity (high-ceiling). This encourages guessing initially, but students need more tools and better tools to reach the goals of activities.
