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 geometry, measurement units, fractions, probability, and more. For example, if you’re teaching a lesson on probability, you can assign the Dice Rolls project. Your students will use coding to create a simulation of dice being rolled, then explore the probability of different outcomes by programmatically rolling a die hundreds or thousands of times.

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.
