Event Details

 STEM Academy: All About DESMOS

 

 

It's tough to give instant feedback or to craft a lesson where students discover math and science. Wouldn't it be great to have a resource for that? For free? Desmos built a fantastic graphing calculator that millions of students around the world use for free everyday. On top of that calculator, teachers and Desmos staff create activities to help students experience all the curiosity, beauty, and sense-making that math has to offer. When it comes to transformative tools for math education, Desmos tops the list.

 


 

Instructors:


Matt Vaudrey is the Educational Technology Coach for Bonita Unified School District who has taught 8th grade, seniors, and most math classes between. Recently, his school tagged him to pilot a 1:1 iPad program for intervention students. With no curriculum, Matt sought ways to make math meaningful for his students using free technologies available.

Matt blogs at MrVaudrey.com, connects with educators across the world on Twitter, and presents at conferences throughout California. Taking any opportunity to "talk shop" with other teachers, his Mullet Ratio is used (and improved) by teachers around the world.

Region 4, System of District and School Support

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires each state to establish a statewide system of intensive and sustained support and improvement for local education agencies and schools receiving Title I funding to increase opportunities for all students to meet state academic content and achievement standards. As a result, the Regional System of District and School Support (RSDSS) was established, and partners with the California Department of Education (CDE), the Comprehensive Assistance Center, and county offices of education to form the Statewide System of School Support (S4) and satisfy the requirements of NCLB. The RSDSS of Region 4 provides leadership, resources, and technical assistance to the schools, districts, and county offices of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Solano in order to increase their collective capacity to support students in meeting or exceeding the state's academic content standards.

Cancellation Policy: Registrations cancelled seven (7) working days or less prior to the workshop are assessed the full charge of the registration.  If the registration is cancelled eight (8) to fifteen (15) working days prior to the workshop, a fifty percent charge is assessed.  If the registration is cancelled sixteen (16) or more working days prior to the workshop, a full refund is given. ***RSDSS reserves the right to cancel or reschedule our trainings as necessary***
