Unlock the power of Desmos in your classroom ...

"The course was BRILLIANT - I had no idea how much more I would easily be able to do on Desmos."

The Desmos Graphing Calculator is a free tool that can be used on a number of different devices: laptops, tablets or phones. In this live online webinar, we will look at how the effective use of Desmos can help to deepen students’ understanding of statistics.  

The webinar will include graphing calculator skills and a discussion of how this will help students develop their understanding of statistics in GCSE and A level Mathematics. 

The webinar will feature approximately 45 minutes of delivered content on how to use Desmos for statistics. Teachers can interact by asking private questions to the presenters in this time. This will be followed by an opportunity for teachers to interact more openly by chatting with other participants on the webinar. 

A recording of the first 45 minutes will be available to applicants after the webinar; the final 15 minutes of interaction will not be recorded.


  • To develop your skills when using the Desmos Graphing Calculator
  • To consider effective strategies for using Desmos in GCSE and A level Mathematics

Who will benefit from attending?

This webinar is ideal for all teachers of GCSE or A level Mathematics who want to make greater use of technology in their teaching. Please join us to see how easy it is to use Desmos.

Absolute beginners to Desmos are welcome - no prior knowledge or experience will be assumed.

"The way it was delivered allowed a bit of toe dipping into the wide realm of Desmos functionality. But crucially delivered in a way that gives enough confidence to have a go at any aspect!"
