This is a webex meeting which requires a Java applet to be installed. I recommend you attend tonight with a Firefox browser. Chrome didn't want to play nice with Webex. Installation will take you approx 10 minutes.

The Desmos online graphing calculator is a free, browser-based tool that allows users to create, share, and explore math. The calculator enables students to easily input hundreds of expressions that graph instantaneously, save and share their work, and create “matherpieces” - blurring the line between math and art. Teachers have found it to be an exceptional tool for class demonstrations: they can create “sliders” to show how changing an equation’s parameters affects a graph’s shape. In addition, they can highlight points of interest (max/min, intersections, and intercepts) and put graphs in bold projector mode for easy classroom viewing.

We plan on giving an overview of our calculator and demonstrating some of the differences between our software and Geogebra.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Oct 23: Desmos Online Calculator
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
