The Linking Mathematics and Computer Science Summer Workshop for Secondary Teachers is a chance for teachers to discover the natural links between math and computer science. In this experience, teachers work in teams and learn how these concepts relate and can be used to enrich current classroom content. Click here for a brochure!
Why Should You Attend …
- Computer Science is a unique field of study with a strong foundation in mathematics. You can gain exposure to this exciting discipline that can then be taken back to the classroom to enhance your curriculum and teaching strategies. In addition, we will highlight how these concepts tie into the Indiana Academic Standards. Attendees will earn 15 CRU's towards license renewal.
What You Will Learn...
At the conclusion of this workshop, teachers will:
- Take home activities, games, and puzzles to use in the classroom
- Define the relationship between math and computer science
- Gain valuable knowledge about topics such as Algorithms, Binary Numbers, Recursion, Cryptography, and Logic Circuits.
- This three-day workshop, open to mathematics in grades 9-12 at NO COST to the teacher!
- It will be held July 12-16, 2009 in the Lawson Computer Science Building at Purdue University, West Lafayette campus.
- Participants will be housed on campus in Hillenbrand Residence Halls. Check in will be from 4-5 pm on Sunday July 12th.
- Daily sessions will run from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM with all meals provided for participants each day. The program wil conclude at 3 pm on Thursday July 16th.
- The program is sponsored by the College of Science K-12 Outreach program, the Department of Computer Science, and the Department of Mathematics, and Motorola Foundation
- "Always great to be exposed to and even possibly learn something new. This also helps me appreciate what my students go through as they learn new concepts in my classes. "
- "I have learned things that would hopefully stimulate my students' interests in mathematics."
