Desmos is an incredible math tech resource to use for math technology in the classroom. If you haven’t checked out desmos as a math website for teachers, I encourage you to check out these previous posts for some additional (and more prerequisite) desmos math tips:

Whether you’ve been using desmos in your classroom for a while or you can’t wait to get started with your first activity, this 9 minute video guide will show you how to copy, edit, and combine desmos math teacher activities!
This guide video specifically shows you how to create a lesson from start to finish on desmos with the following lesson flow:
Start with “screens for checking in” to integrate social emotional learning into your math lesson.
Move on to an engaging math activity created by desmos, specifically on coordinate points, but you could sub in any activity here.
Finish the lesson with a prompt to encourage student reflection on the mathematics they just learned.
You’ll learn how to change the text in pre-made problems as well as how to re-order and combine slides inside of the Desmos activity builder without needing to learn Desmos computation layer (CL) coding language.
The best part, within 9 minutes you’ll have a lesson ready to publish to students. It’s that quick and easy, I promise.
