#KidsCanCode Chat: How Can I Integrate Coding with Math?

We need to change the way we teach math to include computer science and coding
In this week’s edition of #KidsCanCode chat, we discussed the ways that we can integrate coding with math! We covered what math concepts overlap with computer science, shared our favorite programming/math combo projects, and gave our best suggestions to others based on what we have learned from our own experiences.
