Students

The Linking Mathematics and Computer Science Workshop will give teachers the opportunity to work with other teachers. In teams they will work towards a similar desire to create fun, exciting ways to include technology and principles of computer science in their teaching strategies.

Teachers will finish this workshop with new skills and real life applications of computer science by becoming familiar with programming concepts using JAVA and defining algorithms in math and how they are used in computer science. The workshop will also define where computers fit in with secondary school curriculum and how teachers can enhance curriculum.
