The TeachCS program at the College of St. Scholastica is excited to offer “Boostrap: Algebra”. This workshop is geared math teachers but is open to all educators. We encourage any teacher with an interest in integrating computer programming concepts into their current curriculum to join us. This workshop is being offered free of charge through the TeachCS@CSS program with funding provided by Google, Inc.
“Bootstrap: Algebra” teaches students to program their own video games in an algebraic programming language, exposing them to key concepts aligned to National and State Math Standards. Middle and high school teachers across the country have implemented the curriculum as part of a regular math class, or as a math or CS elective.
In this accelerated training, attendees will discuss cognitive models of functions and variables in algebra, and why they often differ from what students see in programming. They will also explore Bootstrap’s hands-on techniques for common algebra concepts including the order of operations and word problems.
**Each session is limited to 25 people**
Identical sessions will be offered on both the St. Paul and Duluth campuses in late October:
St. Paul, 340 Cedar Street; October 26th, 6 – 9 PM
