A series of notebooks composed of rich math problems that can be used in a classroom setting to teach and reinforce computational thinking. Each rich math problem can be scaffolded so that learners first develop algorithms to solve the problem and then they test them computationally within the notebooks.
Explore geometric motifs and patterns while learning about traditional basket weaving of the Tla’amin Nation. In the first notebook, students will be able to create their own motif, and in the second, they can display it in a 3D model.
**Click on “binder_init.ipynb” notebook to start and follow the instructions.**
In this science lab, students are asked to measure and record the conductivity of different solutions and are able to compare their results with live readings from the local water treatment plant.
A classic statistics experiment is simply counting how many “heads” and “tails” students observe when flipping a coin repeatedly. This notebook allows them to flip an infinite number of coins.
