Learning Trajectories for Everyday Computing is a collaborative NSF STEM+C project which seeks to understand how to integrate computational thinking into elementary mathematics.
Action Fractions is an integrated mathematics-computational thinking curriculum, designed using Everyday Mathematics. This course focuses on 3rd and 4th grade fractions instruction, providing 10 hours of instruction per year to augment any existing mathematics curriculum.
We have developed learning trajectories for computer science at grades K-5. We have published learning trajectories for the topics of Sequence, Repetition, Conditionals, Decomposition, & Debugging.
The LTEC-2 team continues to present findings in journal articles, poster sessions, panel discussions, and paper presentations. We will continue to update this section as dissemination efforts continue.
Our overall mission is to perform the foundational research necessary to bring computational thinking instruction to all students, including those with various cultural and ethnic backgrounds, learning differences, socioeconomic backgrounds, and genders. This project focuses on integrated instruction, to explore ways in which integrated CT / mathematics instruction can benefit students learning both subjects.
