Dr Laura Benton & Piers Saunders - ScratchMaths Project
Dr Laura Benton (UCL Knowledge Lab) and Piers Saunders (IOE) present the background, aims and methodology of the EEF-funded ScratchMaths project (2014-17), looking at the impact of learning computer programming on the mathematics performance of pupils at Key Stage 2.
The project to date has produced materials (for pupils aged 9-11 years) and professional development to support computational skills and mathematical reasoning through learning to program in Scratch. The speakers will discuss the approach used to explore how far pupils of this age are able to interpret and evaluate different algorithms that solve the same problem, and the resulting findings. Moreover they discuss the opportunities and challenges that might be presented by a compulsory computing curriculum for the enhancement of mathematical skills.
