What We Do
Our mission is to help every student learn math and love learning math. We accomplish that goal by building products and partnerships.
First, we built our best-in-class HTML5 Desmos graphing calculator, which millions of students around the world use for free, including students who are blind or visually-impaired. Our partners have also embedded the calculator in digital curricula and on digital assessments so students spend less time worrying about technology and more time thinking about math.
More recently, we've built hundreds of digital activities, covering grades 6-12 and expanding quickly to other areas of math. Those activities take advantage of everything that makes computers special. They invite students to create their own mathematical ideas, rather than just consuming ours. They encourage students to share their creations with each other, rather than with a grading algorithm. We distribute those activities for free on our website and through partnerships with curriculum publishers.
After making those activities, we saw how much teachers wanted to create their own activities, rather than just assigning ours. So we created Activity Builder and Computation Layer to help teachers make the best activities for their students.
With all of these products, we partner with teachers and serve their students. We couldn't be happier to see those partnerships multiply every year. The best days of math education and the best days of Desmos are ahead of us. So join us! Play with the calculator, check out our activities, or find a career on our growing team.
