- 1. Apply Math Concepts PreK – 12 with an Hour of Code http://tiny.cc/KimGarcia
- 2. Apply Math Concepts PreK – 12 with an Hour of Code Kim Garcia, Georgetown ISD TCEA 2014 Convention Presentation
- 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. What is the Hour of Code? • www.code.org • Anyone Can Learn: 60 second video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYZF6oIZtfc
- 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. 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. 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. 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. Scratch Draws a square Draws a shape with more sides & a “flower”
- 10. Hopscotch • iPad App • Grades 3-8
- 11. Kodable • iPad App • Preschool – Grade 2
- 12. Alice • Install on a Computer • Grades 6-12
- 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. 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. 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/
