Math+C: Mathematics through programming in the elementary grades 💭 💻 #OnDemand
Our NSF-funded project, Math+C, at Education Development Center, in partnership with the Waltham, MA, Public Schools, is developing a coherent integration of computer science (CS) ideas and skills into elementary mathematics, using programming as a language to help children express and explore mathematical ideas. The idea is that programming, used appropriately, can be a medium and language for mathematical and computational thinking, changing how children learn mathematics and helping develop and expose children's computational thinking. For teachers, it can offer opportunities to see children’s thinking in new ways. We are investigating this idea, working closely with children and teachers in grades 2–5.
