Who is this for?

This training is for our second cohort of Oklahoma teachers who are interested in blending math and computer science in the classroom. No programming experience required!

What is Bootstrap:Algebra?

Bootstrap:Algebra is an integrated curriculum that applies math concepts and programming principles towards creating a simple video game. Our materials are designed to align with National and State Standards for Mathematics, CSTA Standards, and K12CS frameworks.

This series of modules can be taught as a separate, standalone STEM or CS class or can be integrated into a mainstream math class, delivered by a math teacher with little to no prior CS experience.

What will the workshop include?

In this 3 day workshop, teachers will go through the curriculum as a student with support and guidance from the facilitators. They will outline and design their game and use mathematical concepts such as the coordinate plane, order of operations, ratio and proportion, domain and range, function composition, word problems and the distance formula to detect collisions, handle keystrokes, and determine how their characters move and interact.

The facilitators will also provide proven classroom strategies and supplements, as well as helping individual teachers make a plan for integrating the curriculum into their unique classroom environment.

What do teachers need to bring?

  • Laptop or Chromebook + charging cable
  • Pen or pencil
  • Excitement!
