WORKSHOPS

MATH + CODING SELF-SERVE WORKSHOPS

Designed to serve as a base lesson plan — a set of activities to select from and adapt — for diverse learning settings (f2f, hybrid, online, parents/children).

Although designed with the Ontario math curriculum in mind, these workshops would be of value to all educators interested in learning how to integrate math + coding. Based on our collection of math + coding lessons.

  • Grades 1-2: geometric/motion patterns & rules; sequential & concurrent events
  • Grades 3-4: shapes, angles, repeating patterns, variables; repeating & nested events
  • Grades 5-6: algebraic expressions, inequalities; conditional statements
  • Grades 7-8: linear/non-linear relationships; sub-programs, code efficiency, data analysis

Observing students:

  • “I notice the students are engaged – not just engaged in that they are interested in the content, but engaged in real thinking.”
  • “I liked that every student was being challenged, yet each student was experiencing success and wanted to keep going”.
  • “They came back in for recess and right away got back to testing out their programs and showing one another what they made with their code”.

Teacher experience:

  • “I like that we aren’t getting lost with the coding, and are focusing on developing understanding of the math”.
  • “It really does help me see the math in a different way”.
  • “It integrates with math very clearly – it doesn’t feel forced”.
  • “I found myself noticing things that I wasn’t expecting”.
  • “This makes me want to try more of these activities”.
