Code.org has partnered with Bootstrap to develop a curriculum which teaches algebraic and geometric concepts through computer programming. The two ten hour courses from Code.org focus on concepts like order of operations, the Cartesian plane, function composition and definition, and solving word problems. Or visit Bootstrap to explore their longer Bootstrap:1 and Bootstrap:2 courses which teach more mathematical and programming concepts. By shifting classwork from abstract pencil-and-paper problems to a series of relevant programming problems, Code.org's CS in Algebra demonstrates how algebra applies in the real world, using an exciting, hands-on approach to create something cool.
The purpose of the CS4Utah Initiative is to unify efforts across the state in Computer Science education and provide support and strategic direction for those efforts, resulting in a state-wide Computer Science education ecosystem..
CS Discoveries is an introductory computer science course that empowers students to create authentic artifacts and engage with computer science as a medium for creativity, communication, problem solving, and fun.
Course A offers computer science curriculum for beginning readers around the kindergarten age range. Students will learn to program using commands like loops and events. The lessons featured in this course also teach students to collaborate with others meaningfully, investigate different problem-solving techniques, persist in the face of difficult tasks, and learn about internet safety. By the end of this course, students create their very own custom game or story from Play Lab that they can share.
