About Desmos
Desmos Studio is a Public Benefit Corporation with a goal of helping everyone learn math, love math, and grow with math. We believe that everyone has an inner mathematician and that some people haven’t been given the opportunity, encouragement, or tools to discover theirs. So we prioritize equity and accessibility at every level of our work.

Our free suite of math tools, including our Graphing Calculator, is used annually by over 75 million people around the world. Those tools help people represent their ideas mathematically, connect different representations dynamically, make conjectures, and then develop entirely new ideas.

Desmos Classroom invites, celebrates, and develops student brilliance through free digital classroom activities, thoughtfully designed by teachers for teachers. Those activities are guided by our our pedagogical philosophy and help students to explore concepts deeply, collaborate with their peers on problem-solving, and apply knowledge creatively as mathematicians.

Mason Preparatory School is committed to the education of the whole child in preparation for secondary education through the cultivation of respect, integrity, and personal responsibility within a nurturing environment that results in a productive citizen of a global community.
