What is Desmos?
Desmos is an online calculator that can be used online through an internet browser visiting the site and selecting the Math Tools drop-down to choose your calculator version.
An alternative option is to download the Desmos App in Google Play for Android Devices, the Apple App Store for Apple devices such as iPhones and iPads, and the Chrome Web Store for Chromebooks, all for FREE.
Desmos and MAAP – Starting with the 2020-2021 Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) assessments, the Desmos graphing calculator (MAAP version) is now the embedded graphing calculator in the Nextera test delivery platform for End-of-Course (EOC) Algebra I. The Desmos graphing calculator (MAAP version) is also available on the online End-of-Course (EOC) Algebra I practice test.
NOTE: As always, using any (online or handheld) graphing calculator is a student’s choice based on their classroom instruction. Students will continue to be allowed to use their handheld calculators, provided the calculators meet the requirements outlined in the MAAP Calculator Policy.
