How to Organize and Manage Activities


Organize your Desmos Classroom activities using Collections. Collections are like digital folders that keep your activities grouped together. Create your own collection or copy an existing one.

Use collections like digital folders to keep track of activities or to organize activities for different courses or topics. From the activity page, select the plus sign to the right of the activity title, and then select an existing collection or create a new one.

Refer to the Organize Activities with Collections page to find more information about the Collections feature.

Make Changes

Do you want to modify an already existing activity? From the activity page, select the three vertical dots to the right of the activity title, and then select “Copy and edit.” This adds the activity to your “Custom Activities” list, and now you can edit the activity.

Refer to the Manage Editors page to learn more about collaborating on activities.
