Learning To Code Improves Your Child’s Math Scores!

With tech continuing to be the fastest-growing industry in the world, the ability to code is becoming an essential skill to have in your 21st century toolbelt. The great news is that learning to code with Tynker will also significantly increase your child’s math abilities and testing scores. 

Better In Math!

The different ways of breaking down and analyzing coding problems with Tynker are particularly helpful when it comes to math:

  • Coding helps kids think logically by developing essential critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which will give them a head start in math at school.
  • For example, when kids program a game on Tynker where they need to keep score and health—they’re using variables and arithmetic.
  • When they’re making shapes with our pen drawing—they’re using geometry while working with angles and numbers.
  • When they’re building the logic of a program—they’re using expressions and testing inequalities.
  • When they’re animating and moving things on the screen—they’re using coordinate geometry.

What Do Teachers Say About Tynker?

Jesse Thorstad, the Technology Coordinator for the Fergus Falls Public Schools district in Minnesota, had a great experience with Tynker:

“Tynker provides kids with a concrete example of the power of decimal places. When studying decimals in math, the students experience a heartwarming ‘Ah-ha!’ moment when they see how moving a decimal block of code can affect the objects on the screen tenfold.”

What About Parents?

Thomas bought a Tynker plan for his 11-year-old son Benji and noticed a significant improvement in his math abilities:

“One of the things Benji was having a problem with was math, so having to do the math involved in making a game and adding a score, multiplying for points, and different things like that, I think it helped him a lot.”
