A One-hour Curriculum to Engage Middle School Students in Robotics and Computer Science using Cubelets

Robotics has become a standard tool in outreaching to grades K-12 and attract- ing students to the STEM disciplines. Performing these activities in the class room usually requires substantial time commitment by the teacher and integration into the curriculum requires major effort, which makes spontaneous and short-term engage- ments difficult. This paper studies using “Cubelets”, a modular robotic construction kit, which requires virtually no setup time and allows substantial engagement and change of perception of STEM in as little as a 1-hour session. This paper describes the constructivist curriculum and provides qualitative and quantitative results on perception changes with respect to STEM and computer science in particular as a field of study.View External Website228_Correll_et_al_2012.pdf

Math For Families: Helping Your Child With Math At Home

Teachers help build children’s mathematical thinking at school. Families help build it at home. Research shows that an ongoing partnership with families can help children develop math understanding. This resource suggests ways families can support children’s math development by doing activities at home. Teachers and parents help children view themselves as able learners of math through using real objects and encouraging them to talk about their learning. The following dialogue is an example of how you can encourage your child to talk about math. Encourage your child to tell you about a math activity they bring home and talk about how they did it.
