Hour of Code

Today all of the math classes participated in the Hour of Code.  Minecraft seemed to be the most popular choice with Star Wars coming in second.  It was great to see the students using their problem solving skills and learning that it is ok not to get something on the first try.  Everyone really seemed to learn from their mistakes and persevere until they wrote code that worked.  It was also great to see the collaboration between students.  I loved hearing "How did you do that?" or "I can help you with that!"  I hope that we will be able to do more coding throughout the year.
