Kew High School is integrating Algorithms and Coding into a series of Mathematics units. This presentation looks in some detail of our Year 7 units on measurement and transformations. Our approach aims to incorporate realistic and relevant applications of algorithms and coding without the need to add on new units to the crowded Mathematics curriculum. It also ties in with STEM education principles.

We believe it is vital that all our mathematics teachers have access to resources that are fun and easily taught by all, and we are happy to share them with you. Time will also be made available to discuss strategies adopted at other schools, together with the pros and cons of different approaches.
