One thought on “Conrad Wolfram: Teaching kids real math with computers

  1. Thank you Conrad!
    This is the first time that I have seen a talk that summarizes my feelings on this subject as precisely as your’s has. I have been working with the public schools in Pasadena, California to add programming to the math curriculum for the precise reasons that you articulate in your talk. I have also been working on a math curriculum for younger students that uses programming to teach math concepts such as compounding and limits. I write this to let you know that there are people out there who agree with you whole heartedly, and are taking action.

    Please keep speaking out.
