Abstract

In the current climate of a technology-centered world and standards-based educational system, the vision of including computer science and computational thinking at the elementary level has gained momentum in recent years. This paper examines the similarities between elementary mathematics and computer science content standards and practices, and describes a hands-on, visual coding curriculum that allows teachers to integrate the two into mathematics instruction that meets the requirements of the standards using research based instructional strategies.
