If you love Desmos and have wanted to get started with Activity Builder but have felt intimidated and not sure how to get started, you’re in the right place. In this mini workshop, you will learn how to use Activity Builder to create lessons that will help you see students’ work, give them feedback, and help you facilitate conversations both in person and virtually. We’ll begin by discussing why we should use Activity Builder. From there, we’ll get you comfortable by exploring how to use an already created Activity Builder. Then you’ll learn how to create and edit your own Desmos Activity with a focus on best practices. Finally we’ll talk about how to facilitate a lesson using Activity Builder and how do I merge this with what you’re already doing.
