Book Description to Finelybook sorting
Writing a computer program is a complex task which relies on many prerequisite skills. In particular, math concepts such as variable expressions, the order of operations, negative numbers and coordinate systems are essential to developing even the most basic computer programs or video games. Since these concepts are not included in many state or national mathematics standards for elementary students, they are not taught in many elementary schools. This curriculum is an attempt to bridge that gap: included are math concepts selected for their importance to computer programming and video game development. While these concepts are typically presented to older students, they are made accessible, here, to a younger audience through visual models and project-based learning, an approach aimed toward facilitating the meaningful learning necessary for students to solve problems and produce original work. Each chapter of this book culminates in a coding project, written in the widely-used Python programming language, which utilizes preceding math concepts. Challenge exercises follow these projects, offering students an opportunity to extend and apply their learning. It is through grappling with these challenges that students will earn the greatest rewards.
