Code Math TEKS presented by Code.org Affiliates
Karen North, Kim Lane, and Susan Reeves
Practice creates easy from difficult. Coding is a fun practice tool for math. It is a way of communicating, a way of understanding a process and articulating that through code. See how Code.org lessons including unplugged activities build the process standards for K-8 math TEKS through finance, art and geometry.
“Ask the problem before teaching the method – the process.”

The first step in computer programming is to define the goal.
“If you can guess about IT, IT is in the Real World …
If you can argue about it, it is in your Real World”
