Coding in the Maths Classroom

Summary

Exploring student cognition in the Maths classroom. Can students develop a deeper understanding of Mathematical concepts through targeted coding activities in the classroom? This workshop will provide teachers with ideas about how to introduce the use of coding using block based SNAP https://snap.berkeley.edu/, and text base Python https://www.python.org/ programming languages with Maths students to:
• find pi by approximation, using Archimedes method
• find primes using Eratosthenes sieve method
• generate permutations/combinations
These activities are designed to expose students to numerical methods that they can create or replicate to help their understanding of their application.
