Desmos is an online graphing calculator. Many teachers have created activities for their classes using the calculator. Activities on the site are created by teachers and Desmos staff and will vary. You can also create your own activities.

Create a Graph

You and your students can use this online tool to create graphs.

Desmos: Graphing

What if students could "play" with graphs and quickly see what changing a single component would do to a graph (such as changing the b in y =mx+b)? Desmos is user friendly and thoughtfully uses color and layout in ways that support students' understanding. 

180 Ways to Use Estimation 180: Inequalities

Estimation 180 is an incredibly rich resource that offers photographs that we can use in meaningfully developing students' number sense. In this blog post, the author uses 4 of the images (and the students' estimates about those images) to quickly and meaningfully introduce (or review) graphing and writing inequalities.

Characteristics of White Supremacy Culture

This site lists characteristics of white supremacy culture that regularly appear in organizations, as well as "antidotes" to combat them. These characteristics are shown as damaging to both people of color and white people because they are "used as norms and standards without being pro-actively named or chosen by the group" and they promote white supremacy thinking.

Sight Words

For teachers serving beginning-level adult readers and working on alphabetics, this website provides a FREE source of sight word flashcards, games, lessons, and activities. All are focused on the Dolch Sight and Fry Instant lists; two collections of words that all beginning readers (at GE K-3) should recognize without sounding out letter by letter.

Rubrics for Providing Writing Feedback

These two rubrics were created by Stephanie Sommers, Writing Curriculum Team Lead with Minneapolis Adult Education. They are examples of single point rubrics, a format with "at target" expectations in a middle column, a blank column to the left for "below target," and another blank column to the right for "above target." This provides students with specific and valuable teacher feedback for improving their performance.
