Teach Your Students to Program, Mathematically

Bootstrap teaches students to program their own video games in an algebraic programming language, exposing them to key math concepts. Middle- and high-school teachers around the country have implemented the curriculum as a one-month module, a weekly activity or an after school program.

In Bootstrap, Your Students will Practice and Apply

  • Solving word problems
  • Coordinate planes and Graphing
  • Functions and Variables
  • Function Composition
  • Inequalities in the Plane
  • The Pythagorean Theorem

In this Workshop, You Will

  • Participate in a real classroom demonstration of the curriculum
  • Build your own video game, using the math you already know
  • Learn how TEKS Math Standards can be met through a STEM-focused programming curriculum
  • Explore cutting-edge research on algebra education
