Dynamic and Dynamite Desmos Demos

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Explore the powerful (and free) online graphing software from Desmos.com and hopefully discover a few ways that you and your students would benefit from using it. Desmos is incredibly elegant and easy to use, while also being a versatile tool capable of graphing equations in many different forms. Learn how Desmos makes exploring transformations so easy and (I dare say!) fun. See examples of student artwork created by transforming an assortment of basic toolkit equations. Observe how easily Desmos graphs (and animates) parametric and polar functions. Calculus lovers will also enjoy seeing Desmos beautifully graph functions defined as Taylor Series in their sigma notation! Bring your laptop or tablet and play around with this amazing graphing tool.
