School Week 3: The Code! Computer Math, Calculus Research Lab, AP Computer Science

Last week, Computer Math started Chapter 1 in our Python based Discrete Mathematics etext by the Litvins. AP Computer Science started Chapter 2 on constructing objects from pre-existing java classes and manipulating said objects with accessor and mutator methods reading from the Horstmann etext. Calculus Research Lab worked on Chapter 1 in the SAGE based Calculus etext by Granville. 

Week 2: Computer Math

Week 2: Computer Science 

Week 2: Calculus Research Lab

Wow, talk about the "Paperless Office!" I finally have a paperless office in Computer Math, Computer Science and Calculus Research Lab at least. I have an electronic copy of everything I do in class, from assignment sheets to etextbooks and from SmartNotes to ScreenCasts. I post all my handouts on edmodo and all my ScreenCasts on youtube. 

So, my students don't need a traditional notebook or textbook. Students do their work online as well! Computer Math and Calculus Research Lab use and AP Computer Science uses a ssh server I setup in class that they can access from home as well.

My students have access to all materials, except Labs and Tests, 24/7 online! Welcome to the 21st Century, finally!

HTH, I hope you enjoyed this week's Code!

Learning with Technology,
