This was a great professional development that will be completely useful going forward (that is, as soon as we are 1:1). The Desmos program offers some really great resources and tools that will allow you to implement some extremely meaningful classroom lessons.
The training on Desmos was very informative. The presenter did a wonderful job not only demonstrating and explaining DESMOS, but also answered questions and helped us figure out the best ways to use the program in our classrooms.
This training was excellent. The training focused on using the Desmos graphing calculator tools to explore ways that students can develop their own power as mathematical problem solvers. The training explained the different capabilities of the calculator, such as exploring points, tables, functions, inequalities, sliders, and lists. My goal was to learn a new way to engage the students – and this training did exactly that.
