Get Started With These Recommended Activities
These two popular activities illustrate how NGPF's Desmos Classroom Activities can bring your math class to life:
- In DESMOS: Growth of Savings vs Investments, students are introduced to exponential growth by comparing how savings and investments grow over time. Through Desmos Classroom, students can sketch predictions and check their work, automate tedious calculations, and share takeaways with classmates.
- In DESMOS: Introducing Marginal and Effective Income Tax Rates, students complete a piecewise function modeling marginal tax rates. Then, using an interactive graph, they can visualize how tax brackets really work and make a connection to effective tax rate.
