Is Desmos Graphing Calculator safe for my kids?

The Desmos Graphing Calculator is safe for kids. It's best suited for teens, as younger kids will not need to use graphing calculators in general, and the features might confuse and frustrate them.

One concern with calculator apps in general is that kids often rely too heavily on the calculator and do not really learn the material. Parents may want to reinforce the value of learning the material and concepts without depending on the calculator.

Specifically, the Desmos Graphing Calculator app offers a few benefits. One benefit is the interactive slider feature, which can help students build an understanding of how certain plots react to changes in the values of the function. Another benefit is the ease of use of the Desmos Graphing Calculator.

Many graphing calculators can be complicated to use, but with its digital interface, the buttons and screens on this app can change according to the need of the specific problem, making the Desmos Graphing Calculator easier for kids to use.
