A series of posters of reminders of ‘good programming practices for engaging in mathematical work. Developed for MATH 1P40 (MICA I) course at Brock University by Alana Mulder (Brock University). Funded by SSHRC Partnership Development Grant ((Gadanidis & Sinclair et al.; 2016-18): *Computational Thinking in Mathematics Education*)

First year course using programming for pure and applied mathematics investigation projects. Course outline and five project guidelines designed by Bill Ralph (Brock University) since 2001.

Lab guidelines for the first year course using programming for pure and applied mathematics investigation projects. Organization of lab sessions designed by Bill Ralph (Brock University) in 2002 (updated 2017).

This short article reflects on recent activities by academic mathematicians, under the name of ‘computational thinking’, and argues for whether and how it could be brought into undergraduate mathematics education.

Upper year programming-based mathematics course for prospective teachers first offered in 2017. Course design by Chantal Buteau (Brock University) including programming-based mathematics tasks originally designed by Bill Ralph (Brock University) and adapted by Buteau.

This article provides a short description of all implementation aspects of undergraduate programming-based mathematics courses at Brock University: classroom (lecture and laboratory sessions); curriculum, including a detailed example of a programming-based mathematical task; selection of programming languages; assessment; and a brief account of the course evolution from 2001 to 2015. It ends by addressing the question: how do we know that “it” works?
