Desmos: Calculator + Instructional Tool (Grades 3-12)

Description:

Spend a day with desmos, learning how to integrate this interactive tool into your instruction! During this workshop you will be given the opportunity to explore this exciting new instructional tool according to your own level of prior experience as a user of desmos and for the specific grade/course that you teach. Starting in the Spring of 2019, desmos calculators will be available on Virginia’s Standards of Learning mathematics assessments: Grade 4-Algebra II EOC testing. This workshop will prepare you to help your students feel confident using the desmos calculator on the SOL tests that will be given at the end of the current school year. In addition, during the workshop you will be able to examine the many different features of this free, game-changing instructional tool. There will be a variety of Break-Out sessions offered which will allow you to explore the different desmos resources at your own individual comfort level. You will be given the chance to investigate all of desmos’ features, from animating objects and functions to creating lessons and activities. Throughout the day, you will also be networking with other classroom teachers and instructional leaders to share strategies that have been and/or might be successful in your classrooms and schools.
