Bootstrap - Welcome to the Future of Algebra education! - @edcamposjr

Device: Laptop or Chromebook

Teach your students to code and reinforce their Algebra skills using this FREE Common Core aligned curriculum. Students can login using their Google accounts and write, compile, and troubleshoot their code with WeScheme, a cloud based programming environment. Your students will program their own video game using code and Algebra(order of operations, linear equations, piecewise functions, compound inequalities, and distance formula).

In this session, you will need a laptop or chromebook to access to access and utilize the WeScheme.org programming environment. However, 90% of this session will be low-tech. We will mainly be focusing on the pedagogy of using Circles of Evaluation and the Design Recipe to teach and reinforce concepts like: order of operations, domain/range, functions, and solving word problems. Attendees will get LOTS of practice using the "Circles of Evaluation" to model functions and evaluate Order of Operations problems and then test their evaluations with computer science and the WeScheme cloud-based programming environment.

As a bonus, attendees will get a general overview of the flow and pedagogy of the FREE Bootstrap curriculum and ways to integrate units into your existing math curriculum.
