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 contrast, 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.
The book includes:
- current research related to the inclusion of CS in K–5 classrooms
- recommendations on how to incorporate CS to support strengthening mathematics skills
- practical programming examples that encourage ‘getting out of the blocks’
- ‘mission clarity’ reminders to support the decision-making process for CS integration in your classroom.
