Exploring Mathematics with Computing and Robotics

(This course is currently under development).

For block-based robotics, computing, and math and computing activities from grade 1 to 9, please check out RoboBlockly.

This course explores mathematical concepts in the Common Core State Standards- Mathematics through practical applications with hands-on and fun computing and robotics activities. Students write C/C++ computer programs to control  a single robot and multiple robots. Through  both personalized and collaborative group computing and robotics activities, students learn and reinforce the algebraic thinking with arithmetic operations in whole and decimal numbers, number line,  fractions, measurement, variables, data conversion, lines, angles, ratios, proportions, and linear relation.  The hands-on computing and experiments help students make meaningful connections between abstract math concepts and their relevance to real-life applications, as well as help develop students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
