Algebra I Free, Virtual Training Webinar on Desmos

Starting with the 2020-2021 Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) exams, the Desmos graphing calculator will be offered as an additional embedded graphing calculator in the Nextera test delivery platform for the End-of-Course (EOC) Algebra I exam (MAAP version). 

 To assist Algebra I teachers with this new technology, the Office of Secondary Education at the MDE, in partnership with Algebra Nation, has created a short webinar to introduce the basics of the Desmos Graphing Calculator along with brief tutorials to assist teachers with classroom implementation.   The webinar is approximately 45 minutes in length and can be found on YouTube by clicking here.
