TEDTalks : Conrad Wolfram - Teaching Kids Real Math with Computers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From rockets to stock markets, many of humankind's most thrilling creations are powered by math. So why do kids lose interest in it? Conrad Wolfram says the part of math we teach - calculation by hand - isn't just tedious, it's mostly irrelevant to real mathematics and the real world. He presents his radical idea: teaching kids math through computer programming
Anchoring computational thinking in today's curriculum : the urgent priorty of changing school maths( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors define Computational Thinking as a mode of thinking about life, in which you apply a rigorous and repeatable problem-solving process to ideas, challenges and opportunities that you encounter. They explain how this process should be applicable particularly in maths, where they identify urgent need of change, but should also extend across a wide range of subjects in the current curriculum context. After all, they argue, it is away of thinking â not the only way of thinking â but an important perspective across life. Whatever the politics or naming, they conclude, a core, ubiquitous school subject will emerge in the space they describe, and the first countries, regions, schools that manage this new core and its cross-curricular application âwill win big timeâ.
