Would you like unleash the full potential of Desmos by designing your own activities that scaffold equation-solving skills and support students' growth across grade levels? Customized Desmos activities allow teachers to design interactive experiences that cater to students' diverse needs, abilities, and learning styles. Join Sofia Guerrero for this hands-on, interactive workshop as we dive into an immersive experience using the digital platform Desmos, exploring where to locate and edit pre-built activities as well as how to create your own customized activities from scratch, step-by-step. Get ready to revolutionize your equation instruction and empower your students to become confident problem solvers at every stage of their mathematical journey! Sofia’s expertise as an instructional specialist will equip you with the skills you need to promote student agency, enhance differentiation, and promote deeper understanding of concepts that will facilitate a seamless transition from elementary to secondary mathematics.  

This is workshop three of three for the series titled “Vertical Alignment for Solving Equations in Secondary Math.” 

Key Takeaways: 

  1. Learn how to design Desmos activities that scaffold equation-solving skills, providing appropriate challenges and support at each stage of the vertical progression. 
  2. Explore strategies for incorporating interactive elements, such as sliders, graphs, and simulations, to enhance student engagement and deepen understanding of equations.  
  3. Discover techniques for aligning Desmos activities with curriculum standards and learning objectives, ensuring coherence and continuity in equation instruction across grade levels.  
  4. Gain insights into leveraging Desmos data and feedback features to assess student progress, identify areas for growth, and inform instructional decision-making. 

Workshop Details: 

While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on demand and earn up to three continuing education credits. 

Special Technology Instructions: 

Attendees will need access to an internet-enabled device, a personal Google account (not affiliated with their school), and an optional free Desmos account. SimpleK12’s Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.


Participants will complete an exit ticket to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
