The presenter in the video was very knowledgeable with Desmos. Will most definitely be implementing it into my classroom in order to facilitate student learning.
This training was extremely beneficial to my classroom. I plan to implement some of the activities that were showcased both digitally and in hard copy to my students. Looking over some of the activities, the rigor is definitely there to challenge my students, possibly during our review sessions prior to STAAR testing.
Desmos have building activities with vocabulary, it allows the students to struggle and makes them think and analyze the content being presented. It gives them opportunities to approach math in various ways allowing them to explore their thought process and problem solving strategies. Biggest take away is that it allows students to be right & wrong in interesting ways by NOT just giving them the answer, they are NEVER told if correct or incorrect, rather they explore and see if they are correct by the visualizations in the lessons.
