#CutOut4CS: Teacher Professional Development

#CutOut4CS lessons are designed to emphasize mathematics through a computer science curriculum focused on programming/coding. Using a cookie design scenario and object-oriented programming language (Scratch), #CutOut4CS, focuses on content standards in Operations & Algebraic Thinking. The lessons can be used for one hour a day or even as a full-day experience. TECH CORPS collaborates with the Teaching & Learning Collaborative on the design and implementation of the program.
