Start Code has been invited to give a workshop promoting math and computer programming using video games. We will be showing how mathematical concepts of Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry are all used to code popular video games and gaming concepts.
"We're Psyched about Math" is a free event for parents and students on Oct. 25th at 6:30pm. It is hosted by the South Dekalb Parent Council and promises to be a fun evening of free workshops. Come on out to Redan Middle School for a variety of workshops promoting math.
We will demonstrate to kids interested in computer programming that math and computer science complement each other and that, while it isn't necessary to be great at math to learn programming, the two help each other by both practicing structured thinking, algorithms, and problem solving. It's cross training for your brain and it's fun!
