CodeWorld Rises Again!

The idea was to get middle school students to work passionately on using mathematics to create things, by: Doing their own original, creative work, instead of following instructions or reaching set answers.Getting instant feedback 24 hours a day, so they can tinker and learn in a self-directed way.Building confidence by working on their own ideas, inspiring pride and excitement.Experiencing how concepts from geometry, algebra, and physics can be springboards for creativity.Becoming creators, rather than just consumers, of technology. That’s a lofty set of goals, but it was very successful. In the 2011-2012 school year, I taught a small class of six students, two to three hours per week. We had an awesome time. Students didn’t really think of what they were doing as math.

At the end of that year, I had plans to teach this program in multiple schools the following school year. Getting Started. Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python.

Together, they are designed to help people with no prior exposure to computer science or programming learn to think computationally and write programs to tackle useful problems. Some of the people taking the two courses will use them as a stepping stone to more advanced computer science courses, but for many it will be their first and last computer science courses. Since these courses may be the only formal computer science courses many of the students take, we have chosen to focus on breadth rather than depth.
