This innovative course introduces students to coordinate geometry and digital platforms such as spreadsheets and Scratch to explore math and coding concepts via games. Students learn the basics of the Cartesian plane, explore the classification and hierarchy of 2D shapes and solve real-world problems involving coordinates, two-dimensional shapes, associated mensuration, length and distance measurement and units and fraction operations.
The course teaches coding, computational thinking and design thinking to take the engagement and outcome of learning math to the next level.
Week 1 & 2: Cartesian' plane, 'x' and 'y' coordinates and basic charts
Week 3 & 4: Scratch Programming user interface and creating a game
Week 5: Design Thinking and Coordinate Geometry Project
The price listed is for classes happening on Saturday each week, over 5 weekends.
