Although it's not required, we suggest that students sign into a Desmos account before accessing a Desmos activity at When students sign in, they'll have the option to resume and view their work after leaving the activity.

Students can still participate in an activity without signing into their Desmos accounts but will not be able to resume their progress after they leave.

Desmos Classroom Accounts are separate from Desmos Calculator Tools accounts. If students are new to Desmos and use both products, they will need to create two new accounts. The same username and password can be used for both accounts. Learn more about creating free a free Desmos Calculator Tools Account.



Accessing Previous Activities

If students are logged in when they visit, they will see up to ten previous activities along with a link to View More. Clicking on an activity takes them back to resume their work.

Logged-in students can also see if their teacher has left any new written feedback on previous activities.

Note that teachers may have chosen to activate Activity Permissions - students awaiting approval will be able to participate in all activities, but social features (like seeing other student responses) will be hidden until a teacher or co-teacher grants permissions.
