### Making Geometric Probability Dynamic Using Programming

The Problem Chris wants to design a bean bag toss game and proposes the following schematic.  How would Chris figure out the probability of a bean bag going through one of the green openings if it is thrown randomly at the board? This is the type of application problem typical of a high school geometry…

### Process: What does implementing a successful coding lesson in math look like anyway?

Let’s start by examining the biggest mistakes I was making in trying to integrate coding into my lessons for the LONGEST time. Mistake 1: The Walk Through The first time I had my students complete the Playful Polygons lesson in our geometry classes would have sounded something like this if recorded, “Ok you guys today…

### Community Building with Code

I am so lucky to work in a math department of teachers who are risk takers and are always willing to try new things. This year, our department started the year off with the “All About Me” Project in Scratch. Our school has placed a big emphasis on creating classroom community throughout the school year,…

### Who and Why
