Starting a New Computer Science Course

I have been working on some new computer science offerings for my school district. I attended a Code.org workshop and have been researching different ways for elementary and junior high students to learn coding concepts and how mathematics play an important role in programming. I am presenting my ideas and research at the 2016 SPARCC Conference in Massillon, Ohio August 5th. I did a small field test with some 6th graders at the end of last school year and they loved it! Let’s hope we can get our students interested in coding.
