Available through SpringBoard Digital, Desmos tools and activities are designed for use with SpringBoard mathematics.

SpringBoard provides access to Desmos geometry tools and the Desmos graphing calculator directly from the landing page.

Desmos calculators (four-function, scientific, and graphing) are also available within the math eBook.

Desmos Classroom Activities are interactive digital experiences that help students learn algebra, geometry, and advanced mathematics through modeling and use of multiple representations.

Desmos Activity Tab

Desmos activities are available on the landing page for both teachers and students as a tab in their top navigation. This means that teachers will not need to assign an activity in order for students to have access to that activity. If a teacher does want to assign an activity, they can do so through Google Classroom, Schoology, or Canvas.

Assigning Desmos Activities

Math teachers can share Desmos activity links with students through Add to Clipboard or Share to Google Classroom.

To Share to Google Classroom from Desmos Activities:

  1. Make sure you’ve selected the appropriate Class and Program you want to share.
  2. Navigate to the Desmos Activities tab and choose any of the activities.
  3. Click Share to Google Classroom in the menu.
  4. In Google Classroom, choose your class. Then click Go.
  5. Select Create assignment, and then click Go.
  6. Add title and instructions to your assignment, select the students you are assigning a resource to. Then click Assign.
  7. The assignment appears in your Google Classroom dashboard.

Note: Make sure your students are rostered in Google Classroom and in SpringBoard Digital.

Add to Clipboard

Add to clipboard functionality provides a shareable link to access Desmos activities, which can be used with any Learning Management System (LMS). This will allow teachers to provide links to SpringBoard Digital content from their chosen application to students rostered in their classes.

To Add to Clipboard from the Desmos Activities tab:

  1. Make sure you’ve selected the appropriate Class and Program you want to share.
  2. Navigate to the Desmos Activities tab and choose an activity.
  3. Click Add to Clipboard in the menu. A pop-up success message will appear: Copying to clipboard was successful!
  4. Paste the link in an application of your choosing with students rostered in your class.

Note: Add to Clipboard links cannot be accessed by students not rostered in the class where the link was generated.
