Conrad Wolfram: Teaching kids real math with computers [Education]
posted January 13 2014 11:47.57 by spic0m




This was linked as a comment to one of our previous posts from a reader and i find it very interesting.

"From rockets to stock markets, math powers many of humanity's most thrilling creations. So why do kids lose interest? Conrad Wolfram says the part of math we teach -- calculation by hand -- isn't just tedious, it's mostly irrelevant to real mathematics and the real world. He presents his radical idea: teaching kids math through computer programming."
