When is coding not a computer science class? When it’s CodeR4MATH.

R code snippet

You could say that Concord Consortium’s project Coding with R for Mathematical Modeling (CodeR4MATH) is very sneaky, says Kenia Wiedemann, a postdoctoral researcher on the project. Creative is a different way of describing how CodeR4MATH is getting high school students—especially those who think math and computer science are not for them—coding and creating mathematical models, […]

Teachers examine real-world data and “lifehacking” with CodeR4MATH

Six high school mathematics teachers from Massachusetts joined us last fall to pilot test a new curriculum module designed by the Computing with R for Mathematical Modeling (CodeR4MATH) project to facilitate the instruction of mathematical modeling and computational thinking. The CodeR4MATH team (from left to right): Kenia Wiedemann, Jie Chao, Ben Galluzzo, and Eric Simoneau. […]
