Snap! for Rich Tasks in K-16 Math Education
No materials for the event yet, sorry!
We will show how Snap! may be used to connect mathematics learning goals ranging from elementary school to the advanced undergraduate level. In particular, we will demonstrate how EDC's micro-unit "Number Line" may be used to teach topics ranging from elementary numeracy to advanced mathematics topics such as finite Abelian group theory. We will also describe experiences that some Elementary school students and pre-service mathematics teachers from Maine have had using this Snap! based microworld while learning online in 2021.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!
TurtleStitch is an activity and a coding environment. TurtleStitching is a mi...more

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!
We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...
Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...more
