The free Desmos online graphing calculator has been around for over 6 years and is the online calculator found on the state tests. However, there is more to Desmos than the graphing calculator; there are Desmos Activities and the Desmos Activity Builder. At its basic level, Desmos Activities are interactive slideshows made specifically for math, but when you look deeper, their tools allow you to exploit pedagogical methods that will help student deepen their understanding of math. This session will help introduce you to working with the Desmos Activity Builder. Participants will see how Desmos activities increase both engagement and understanding of mathematics, and how you can create your own custom activities.
