Bio: I'm a former software engineer who has taught middle school math and computer science for the past 6 years. I believe every kid has the right to be a thinker. I started this blog to save resources for integrating programming in the Common Core math classroom. I also use it to save my lessons and reflections from teaching budding computer scientists! Coding has transformed how I teach and think. You'll love what it does for you. You should try it.

    I’m trying to subscribe to your feed, but when I copy your link and paste it in feedly, it tells me no feed is found. 😦

    I found your page because I am very interested in finding ways to incorporate coding into the math curriculum. I’m a math professor at the University of Nebraska – Omaha and am currently doing a pilot study with the Omaha Public Schools elementary gifted and talented program on using a system called bricklayer that was developed by a colleague in the CS Dept. Check out bricklayer.org.

    We would love to get your thoughts and perhaps even work with you if you’re interested.

    Thanks!

      I apologize for not seeing this before! I don’t know why feedly isn’t working… I will see what I can learn though.
      Would love to chat with you more! I’ll send you an email.

    Hi, I just discovered your feed while looking for good information on teaching variables. I am a public librarian trying to teach a group of kids in an after-school coding club so I am not a trained computer programmer or engineer. What I’m finding is that it is difficult to find simple lesson plans about CS topics in one place so I’m hunting all over for things I can use. I plan to watch the videos you embedded to see if they will help me but if you have any other favorite sites/resources for teaching CS, I’d love to hear about them. I already use code.org, Khan Academy, ScratchEd, etc. Thanks!
