Would you like to help your math students develop a deeper understanding of math and coding concepts? Join Jonah Boucher as he explores how you can easily incorporate computational thinking and coding in the context of a math curriculum. He will show how to utilize a block-based programming tool that students can use to code and create 3D models and designs that are printable on any 3D printer or viewable in any AR/VR space. In addition, Jonah will explain how this supplemental math software helps students develop a computational mindset - the ability to think abstractly, recursively, algorithmically, and logically - while addressing CSTA standards in an engaging manner. Best of all, you will discover that teaching coding in the context of math helps students develop a deeper understanding of both!
Jonah Boucher is a high school mathematics and science teacher in Boston, MA with a background in math and environmental science from Hamilton College. He has spent three years working with BlocksCAD to design and implement curriculum across all grade levels and subject areas.
