Desmos ruins student understanding of basic math relationships. 12th graders with no ability to do simple algebra without it
Physics teacher. Desmos is ruining understanding of math. 90% 12th graders cannot manipulate 3 variable equations. F=m×a, students cannot solve for m or a. They do not understand that 6×7 means 7 groups of 6 or 6 groups of 7. Seriously, they don't. They can put numbers in desmos, but all understanding of relationships of numbers and ability to solve without technology are gone. I don't know why I don't see anyone speaking out on this issue.
