Computational Thinking in Math Education

The integration of computational thinking (CT) in mathematics teaching and learning can support the Ministry of Education’s mathematics goal of helping “students build a solid conceptual foundation in math” through dynamic modelling, by making abstract concepts “tangible” code objects, and by offering opportunities for students to develop a robust understanding of mathematical concepts through hands-on investigations. Resources linking to partnering organizations within the Math Knowledge Network (MKT) provide inspiration for teachers who plan to incorporate coding into their math program.
