Published on

TCEA 2014 Presentation: Math comes to life when students apply their skills using computer programming. Students learn problem-solving skills and make concrete connections using angles, variables, functions, and more. Learn about free and easy apps and websites you and your students can explore in an hour and use all year.

Apply Math Concepts PreK - 12 with an Hour of Code

  1. 1. Apply Math Concepts PreK – 12 with an Hour of Code http://tiny.cc/KimGarcia
  2. 2. Apply Math Concepts PreK – 12 with an Hour of Code Kim Garcia, Georgetown ISD TCEA 2014 Convention Presentation
  3. 3. What is the Hour of Code? • www.code.org • One-hour introduction to Computer Science • Demystify “coding,” programming, and computer science • Anyone can learn the basics to be a: – Programmer – Creator – Inventor
  4. 4. What is the Hour of Code? • www.code.org • Anyone Can Learn: 60 second video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYZF6oIZtfc
  5. 5. Georgetown ISD’s Hour of Code • Georgetown ISD’s Hour of Code Events – http://www.georgetownisd.org/HourOfCode • Student Success – 4th Grade Boys and Girls Club Hour of Code participant: “He turned 90 degrees – That’s a right angle!”
  6. 6. Connection Between Math & Computer Science (Programming/Coding) • Computer Science is applied mathematics • It is possible for students to learn a new mathematical concept through programming • Programming environments for kids help students represent math concepts visually and allows them to experiment on the representation • Programming helps students develop problemsolving skills, which translates well into the math classroom
  7. 7. An Hour of Code in Your Math Classroom • Hour of Code: Teach http://code.org/educate/hoc • Scratch web-based • Hopscotch iPad • Kodable iPad • Alice install • And many more options!
  8. 8. Scratch • Web-based • Grades 3-12 • Get Started & Tutorial – http://scratch.mit.edu/ > Create • Hour of Code Tutorial – http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/editor/?tip_bar=hoc • Math Concepts – Degrees, angles – Coordinate plane: x, y coordinates • David Wees: Learning Math Through Programming – http://davidwees.com/content/learning-math-throughprogramming
  9. 9. Scratch Draws a square Draws a shape with more sides & a “flower”
  10. 10. Hopscotch • iPad App • Grades 3-8
  11. 11. Kodable • iPad App • Preschool – Grade 2
  12. 12. Alice • Install on a Computer • Grades 6-12
  13. 13. Ideas for Implementing an Hour of Code • Choose an activity & commit an hour of class time. Learn with your students! – Cover Math TEKS and Technology Applications TEKS • Students continue their Hour of Code projects in a center or when they finish their work • Find ways for students to demonstrate math understanding by coding it – Word problems – Projects
  14. 14. More Resources for Connecting Math & Programming • Bootstrap http://www.bootstrapworld.org/ – A curriculum that educates students in algebra and computer programming simultaneously – http://www.northeastern.edu/insolution/other/2013/07/bui ld-a-game-learn-math-be-cool/
  15. 15. More Resources for Connecting Math & Programming • ComputerBasedMath.org http://www.computerbasedmath.org/ – Movement to build a new math curriculum with computer-based computation at its heart – Campaigning to redefine math education away from historical hand-calculating techniques and toward reallife problem-solving situations that drive high-concept math understanding and experience – TED Talks – Conrad Wolfram: Teaching kids real math with computers http://www.ted.com/talks/conrad_wolfram_teaching_kids _real_math_with_computers.html – WolframAlpha Computational Knowledge Engine http://www.wolframalpha.com/
