  • Hour of Code: A New Angle on PreK-12 Math Install Hopscotch App http://tiny.cc/HopscotchApp Install Kodable App http://tiny.cc/KodableApp
  • Hour of Code: A New Angle on PreK-12 Math Kim Garcia, Georgetown ISD iPadpalooza 2014 Presentation
  • Hour of Code: A New Angle on PreK-12 Math http://tiny.cc/KimGarcia @DigitalLearners
  • Kahoot Survey: Hour of Code • Go to kahoot.it
  • 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
  • What is the Hour of Code? • www.code.org • Anyone Can Learn: 60 second video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYZF6oIZtfc
  • Georgetown ISD’s Hour of Code • Georgetown ISD’s Hour of Code Events – Computer Science Education Week: • December 9-13, 2013 • December 8-12, 2014 – 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!”
  • 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 problem- solving skills, which translates well into the math classroom
  • Kahoot Survey: Who Are You? • Go to kahoot.it
  • An Hour of Code in Your Math Classroom • Hour of Code: Teach http://code.org/educate/hoc • Hopscotch iPad • Kodable iPad • Scratch web-based • Alice install • And many more options!
  • Hopscotch • iPad App • Grades 3-8 • Math Concepts – Units of measure – Degrees, angles – Coordinate plane: x, y coordinates
  • Pair Programming Used under Creative Common license Image source
  • Hopscotch
  • Hopscotch • Hopscotch Curriculum – http://gethopscotch.com/parents-and-educators • Hopscotch Hour of Code Tutorial – http://hourofcode.com/hs
  • Talk to Your Partner 1. What are your ideas for implementing Hopscotch in your Math classroom? 2. Which Math TEKS could be addressed using Hopscotch? Used with permission Image source
  • 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
  • Kodable • iPad App • PreK – Grade 2
  • Talk to Your Partner 1. What are your ideas for implementing Hopscotch in your Math classroom? 2. Which Math TEKS could be addressed using Hopscotch? Used with permission Image source
  • Scratch Draws a square Draws a shape with more sides & a “flower” • Web-based • Grades 3-12
  • Alice • Install on a Computer • Grades 6-12
