PreK-12 Summer Programs

Problem Solving with Programming (IN-PERSON) 

This is a pilot course that is not currently being offered during the school year. This course provides an opportunity to engage with core mathematical concepts through applications to computer programming. Students will engage in rich activities and projects requiring creativity, logic, and problem-solving.  Students will work with a text-based programming language (Pyret) in a supportive and collaborative environment. The course will make connections to the following mathematical concepts: order of operations, proportional reasoning, functions, word problems, inequalities, distance in the coordinate plane, and piecewise functions. This semester course is perfect for students who want to enhance their understanding of algebraic concepts and develop their programming skills.

This course is open to all high school students including rising grade 9 students.

Please Note: This course can NOT replace any portion of the required Algebra I course that is part of the core math course sequence. This course will earn 0.5 STEM credits towards graduation
