Seriously, you can CREATE your own custom card sorts and marbleslides on Desmos now. Gone are the days of paper cutters, laminators, more paper cutters, lost cards, and broken rubber bands. Yes, everyone can create their own card sorts.
Here is the how to guide of how to create your own!
First, you must go to teacher.desmos.com to sign in to your teacher account. Then here are the steps, in pictures.
Card sorts and Marble Slides are called LABS. You need to enable these features in order to create them. Once you are signed in, click on your name and then select LABS.
Click to enable Marbleslides and Card Sort.
Once enabled, you just select LABS like any other slide type in Activity Builder. You can add Math or Text Cards, Image Cards, or even GRAPHS as a card! I’ve heard you can even insert GIFS as image cards, but haven’t tried this yet. You can also create an “answer key” for each card set slide.
Here is what it looks like when you are building.
Here is what the student will see.
Here is what the cards look like to the students once sorted.
