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)
Course and tasks designed by Bill Ralph (Brock University) since 2001.
Organization of lab sessions designed by Bill Ralph (Brock University) in 2002.
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.
