What We Do
At Desmos, we're on a mission to help every student learn math and love learning math. We accomplish this goal by building dependable products and meaningful partnerships.
Our story starts with our Desmos graphing calculator, the best-in-class HTML5 graphing calculator, which millions of students around the world use for free, including students who are blind or visually impaired. Through partnerships, our calculator is embedded in digital curricula and on digital assessments, so students spend less time worrying about technology and more time thinking about math.
To continue spreading the joy of math, we built hundreds of digital activities covering grades 6–12 and expanding quickly to other areas of math. These 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 these activities for free on our website and through partnerships with curriculum publishers.
After making these 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. Come join us on our journey! Play with the calculator, check out our activities, or find a career on our growing team.
