Assimilating Computational and Mathematical thinking into Earth and Environme...

NSF Awards: 1742125

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8

This project includes various in-class and out-of-class activities to study how computational and mathematical thinking can be integrated into the K-12 curriculum of Earth and Environmental science for grade 5 to 7. Several interactive simulations using Netlogo, a multi-agent modeling environment, and Scratch, a visual programming software are developed with steerable parameters and the corresponding output plots for students to manipulate and interpret the results, respectively. Some existing simulations and lesson content are also used. We work with two high-need New Jersey school districts and design lesson plans aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as well as some programming and data analysis projects. Furthermore, we are designing an online learning system to allow students to take lesson and finish assessment in an interactive web system. Grading and statistical analysis of the results will be automatically generated for teachers.
