Coding + Math: Strengthen K–5 Math Skills With Computer Science
How-to books related to computer science (CS) and teaching CS in K-12 environments are often either step-by-step guides or reference books, with little or no connection to pedagogy. By contract, Coding + math offers the analytical foundation teachers need to inform their practice, specifically in mathematics. This book will serve as a deep dive into CS integration for elementary teachers, providing guidelines for designing integrated CS/mathematics curricula through case studies and practical examples. Grounded in research, the book’s mini-lessons contrast visual-based coding with text-based programming and provide guidance in the selection and creation of lessons, instructional materials and CS platforms to help educators prepare students for the careers of the future.Learn MoreA$34.95
