Acknowledging the many choices that are already available in dynamic geometry software, Desmos posted on its blog to make the case for what sets apart its new lightweight, browser-based tool. The creators of the popular free online graphing calculator welcome feedback by email to feedback@desmos.com and by tweets to @desmos. Soon, the Desmos Geometry Tool will appear in products from Pearson and College Preparatory Mathematics.
