Have you ever wondered how to leverage the power of technology to support vertical alignment in equation instruction? Desmos is a powerful online graphing calculator that offers interactive tools and visualizations to help students explore and understand mathematical concepts, including equations. Join Sofia Guerrero for this hands-on, interactive workshop as we dive into an immersive experience using the digital platform Desmos and explore how technology can support building a conceptual understanding of solving equations in an interactive way. Get ready to revolutionize your equation instruction and empower your students to master mathematical concepts at every stage of their learning journey! Sofia’s expertise as an instructional specialist will equip you with the skills you need to enhance student engagement and promote deeper understanding of concepts that will facilitate a seamless transition from elementary to secondary mathematics. 

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

Key Takeaways: 

  1. Explore the diverse features of Desmos for equation instruction, including graphing tools, sliders, and interactive activities, to support students' progression.  
  2. Learn how to scaffold equation-solving skills using Desmos, providing opportunities for exploration, experimentation, and discovery at each stage of the vertical pathway. 
  3. Discover strategies for integrating Desmos into your curriculum to enhance equation instruction, differentiate learning experiences, and promote student agency and ownership of learning. 
  4. Gain insights into assessing student understanding and progress using Desmos, leveraging real-time feedback and data to inform instruction and support student growth. 

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 a poll to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
