Using Desmos in the Math 1 Classroom

Date: September 6, 2019

Time:  9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Location: Biltmore Park/WCU

Fee: $50


Desmos is an online calculator and graphing calculator that NC students will be utilizing during EOG and EOC exams. This workshop will introduce the Desmos calculator assuming no prior knowledge of the calculator and demonstrate how Desmos can be used instructionally to develop the content understanding of algebra and function, single variable statistics, and linear regression. Participants will need to bring a laptop and be ready to spend most of the day engaging in the mathematics of NC Math 1, but also extending their own mathematical knowledge beyond Math 1. Dr. Katie Mawhinney from Appalachian State University will be the presenter. For more information, contact April Spencer at
