My name is "Mr. U" and I am a Math Teacher in Rio Grande Valley area, Texas.
I had my classes do Hour of Code, which they all worked diligently on and enjoyed.
That encouraged me to do more. The process of programming requires many skills.
Math students need the essential skills employed in the development and testing of a program.
These skills (e.g. ability to read, understand, think, plan, develop algorithm, do, evaluate, etc.) are
used in every phase of Math from elementary through to the most advanced courses in college.
So, I am going to see how I can work this into Algebra and AP Statistics courses in 2014-2015.
I am evaluating Construct2 to see if it is the tool I use for teaching and exploring basic programming.
