For Teachers

Bootstrap is aligned to state and Common-Core standards for algebra, allowing teachers to integrate 20-30 hours of material within existing class time. Math teachers across the country have used Bootstrap as an algebra introduction (grades 6-8), enrichment (grades 9-10), or remediaton (grades 11-12).

When used as a precursor to the Program By Design curriculum, Bootstrap makes for an excellent “first-unit” to a high school or college level programming course. Students in Bootstrap learn fundamentals like unit-testing and data-modeling, which they can apply to any language you'd like to teach — it's even being used to build up to the AP CS Exam!
