Using Python Projects to Make a Better Math Class  Young Coder  Medium  0 views

John Evans on 11 Jun 19"Peter Farrell spent more than a decade teaching math and computer science. Somewhere along the way, he began using Python to create programming challenges to pair with his lessons. But what started as a way to reinforce math concepts gradually developed into something else  a gateway to a more practical approach to math education. Peter saw how coding projects allowed students to shift from passively learning concepts to actively working, reasoning, and playing with them. In other words, code helped them to go from learning about math to actually doing math. As he says "Why should the science, art, and homeec students have all the fun? It's about time we heard students saying Look what I made in math class!""
