The author, Eric Appleton, describes his experience as a staff developer in the CUNY Adult Literacy Program in New York City during the COVID-19 pandemic. He sought instructional tools for remote math instruction that encouraged problem-solving and group work.
He found Desmos.com to be the most useful tool, offering a range of math learning tools including graphing calculators and a geometry tool. The author highly recommends Desmos Classroom Activities for math instruction and suggests its potential use in other subjects like reading/writing or ESOL.
