Teacher Review For Desmos

This is a fantastic tool for showing students dynamic relationships with tables, equations and graphs. Love the ability to save graphs and export them as images for use in other applications!

How I Use It
I use this in a variety of ways. In whole class lessons, I may create a graph with dynamic capabilities to help illustrate a key concept. Other times, I create a dynamic graph that allows students to explore relationships and make conjectures. During individual work, many students use this as a supporting resource as well.
My Take
The website is great because it allows you to save and export work, assuming you create a sign in. The app is good for quick graphing and exploration, but doesn't have the save and export capability. Overall, it is a very intuitive tool, that is easy to use for beginners, while being rich enough in features to allow for more advanced uses.
