Student Accounts

Although it's not required, we highly suggest that students sign in to their Desmos accounts before accessing a Desmos activity. 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.

   

If students are logged in, they will see options for accessing previous activities as well as a "See All" link. Students can click on "See All" to browse a full list of their previous activities. Clicking on an activity takes them back to resume their work.

    I wish this was linked to the Sharing Activities with Students and Activity Builder pages, so that I know students can access their work in the future.  

    Being able to access work again is great!

    I am having trouble seeing how to allow students to create a desmos student account. Do they have to create the teacher account in order to have a desmos account? Some of my students don't have gmail or don't want to link it to Desmos.

    Hi Sharee - students will need to enter their class code first before they are able to create a desmos account.

    Hi Molly - No problem. Students can still create a Desmos account without a working email.

    I created an activity. We started it today. Students signed in using their Google accounts. When some of them returned to their activity, what they did previously was no longer there. Also, when their work was still there, students would begin working on the project again and the current work they finished on the activity was no longer there. It reverted back to the originally saved work. For example, they are drawing their initials. I tested it and drew my M on the first slide. I logged out. Then I logged back in, my M was there. I drew the letter P. I logged out and back in and my P was no longer there, but the M was still there.

    If students do not have email, how do they reset password?  My district has email accounts but blocks all outside emails so if they hit 'forgot password' they never receive the email and cannot sign back in.  Is there a way for a teacher to reset it if they are in my class?
