Good, Jonathon; Keenan, Sarah; Mishra, Punya – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
The popular press is rife with examples of how students in the United States and around the globe are learning to program, make, and tinker. The Hour of Code, maker-education, and similar efforts are advocating that more students be exposed to principles found within computer science. We propose an expansion beyond simply teaching computational…

Unal, Aslihan; Unal, Zafer – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
The CCSS is a set of standards released by the National Governors Association in 2010 and was adopted by 43 states (Common Core, 2015). The standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. They are designed to be academically rigorous, while attainable for students and practical for teachers to teach.…

Haake, Magnus; Husain, Layla; Gulz, Agneta – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
There is substantial evidence that preschooler's performance in early math is highly correlated to math performance throughout school as well as academic skills in general. One way to help children attain early math skills is by using targeted educational software and the paper discusses potential gains of using such software to support early math…

Gadanidis, George – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
The history of mathematics educational reform is replete with innovations taken up enthusiastically by early adopters without significant transfer to other classrooms. This paper explores the coupling of coding and mathematics education to create the possibility that coding may serve as a Trojan Horse for mathematics education reform. That is,…
