Desmos has all you need for graphing

Desmos has been a game changer when we are graphing functions in the classroom or virtual. It allows my students graph multiple functions and to manipulate them easily. They are able to not just see and hear my explanation but to be hand on and interact with the graph also.

Pros

I love the interactive graphs that my students use to explore a function. They can graph a higher level function and zoom in and out to explore the graph. It will easily find the relative maximums and minimums, as well as their roots for the graph.

Cons

My one problem with this software is the scale on the graphs. I would love a feature to be able to type in exactly what I want on the screen.

Game Changer for High School Math Teachers

The BIGGEST benefit to using Desmos (besides its ease of use) is that it is the exact same calculator students will use on their NC Test. Having students use it on a daily basis helps them to become familiar with it and boosts confidence in their abilities to solve the problems necessary.

Pros

Desmos is a game changer for high school math teachers. As the lead teacher at my school, I am involved in all of our different classrooms and subject areas. Every one of our math teachers and many of our science teachers use desmos on a daily basis. Most teachers have transitioned from even using a handheld calculator to the desmos calculator. It is SO easy to use and SO user friendly (even for students)! It takes what are complex key strokes on a calculator and simplifies them into a single step. It allows for so much more than just "graphing" including statistical analysis and algebra.

Cons

There isn't anything I don't like about Desmos...but I do wish it integrated into Canvas - in particular Canvas Quizzes. Our school uses Canvas as our Learning Management System and the ability to embed directly into a Quiz would be very helpful for our students and staff.
