Algorithmic Thinking and Coding in the Middle school

Summary

This year, Trinity Grammar School introduced a compulsory semester long subject on Coding and Algorithmic Thinking at Year 7 and Year 8. In this talk, we will explore how we have actively taught Algorithmic Thinking and problem solving skills in a mixed ability class and how this connects to Mathematics and Coding in Python. An overview of the curriculum and some of the activities we have used will also be demonstrated. Our experience of teaching students coding in Python will be shared and how we have assessed students’ development. We’ll also be highlighting some of the things we’ve learnt in developing and delivering a new program of this nature and how we hope to further develop the program in the future.
