Announcing Finalists for the 2020 Math Art Contest

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our first ever Desmos Global Math Art Contest. When we announced this campaign in February, we were not expecting to run straight into the global pandemic of COVID-19. But as schools closed down around the world and everyone’s life was thrown into chaos, we witnessed the unbelievable tenacity and resilience of teachers, students, and parents. Despite all the disruptions, your commitment to continue learning mathematics and loving it in the process has been inspiring. This love shone through in every single graph of the 4,000 entries we received from around the world, including more than 100 countries and territories.

Our team opened, reviewed, and was inspired by each and every graph that was submitted. We saw numerous examples of students expressing their identity through these graphs, from self-portraits and hometowns, to the challenges of quarantine and dreams of travel, to hand-drawn images turned into equations as well as fully animated stories.

As you can imagine, narrowing down to a list of finalists was incredibly hard. We had originally planned for 10 finalists in each age cohort, but after receiving an overwhelming volume of your inspiring works, we decided to double the number of finalists. Even then, we couldn’t come close to celebrating the hard work, creativity, and ingenuity of each of the participants. We were also impressed by the many incredible graphs based on copyrighted characters or images, but were unable to select any as finalists in accordance with our contest rules.

We want to thank all of the students who worked so hard on their graphs as part of this contest. For those who wish to obtain a certificate of participation, we will be sending that out via email to participants in the coming days. We hope to host more of these opportunities in the future, so stay tuned by following us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or email. Teachers and school leaders are also welcome to join our Desmos Educators peer community.

Announcing the Desmos Global Math Art Contest

Submission is now closed! We are currently reviewing the entries and will be announcing results in the second half of May. Thank you!

COVID19 has impacted many schools recently. We are extending the deadline to April 30, so more students can participate.

In recent years, we’ve seen a growing number of classrooms around the world doing math art projects using Desmos. These projects involve using various equations and inequalities in our free Graphing Calculator to create some truly impressive pictures, often as a final project for a unit or even for the course.
