Computers and Problem Solving: A Workshop for Educators
What's the relationship among computational thinking, maths, coding and Computer-Based Maths?
Conrad Wolfram's blog on the why, what and how. Click here for more information about the free webinar we ran on January 11, including video footage showcasing two of our CBM modules and demoing how these can be applied in your classrooms or homes, plus details of future planned events. Computers liberated real-world maths from hand calculating to go far further and faster than anyone could have imagined.
Now it's vital that educational maths stands on this automation too. Conrad Wolfram Founder computerbasedmath. Now we want to lead the world in rethinking education in the technology-driven world.
Computer Science Professional Development Workshop for Educators
A conversation with CBM founder Conrad Wolfram about maths, historical pedagogical approaches and a challenging standstill across the education ecosystem. CBM founder Conrad Wolfram believes "today's educational math is the wrong subject". This article discusses Conrad's vision for maths and how today's subject is the wrong one. This article covers how technology and fresh ideas are helping pupils to learn and touches on how Conrad Wolfram and CBM are at the cutting edge. Grades: Educators: 5-day summer workshop full course or 2-day weekend workshop unit integration Learn more about the curriculum.
