A collection of elementary math projects that demonstrate the application of coding to illustrate or solve basic arithmetic problems and concepts.
- Grades 3-5
- Beginner
- Web iPad
Description
Once your students have completed at least five lessons of Programming 101 or equivalent coding experience, you can assign these CCSS-aligned projects to complement your teaching on topics in arithmetic, geometry, measurement units, fractions, and more. For example, if you’re teaching a lesson on multiplication, you can assign the Multiplication Escape project. Your students will use coding to create a fun game where the player has to quickly answer multiplication questions to move forward and escape falling rocks. Students can also create projects to model word problems, like making change or dividing candies between a group of friends.
With this collection of math projects, you can easily integrate coding and project-based learning into your curriculum. Each STEM lesson walks students through how to make a project about something they’re learning in school with step-by-step instructions. At each step, it encourages them to make their project unique and interesting, emphasizing that coding is a creative medium much like writing or drawing.
We’re constantly updating our STEM courses with new projects, so if there’s something you’d like us to add, send us a message at support@tynker.com.
