Maths – Computer Programming

Today we had our last visit from Dr Elena Preito-Rodriguez from the University of Newcastle.

Dr Elena has visited our class numerous times during the term to teach us all about maths in technology. Students have enjoyed participating in a variety of tasks that have involved learning about binary numbers and deciphering codes.

Today the students put their knowledge and skills to the test and had a go at some computer programming using tablets with an app called Lightbot (free from the app store). This involved programming commands for a cute little robot around a geometric grid.

A big big thank you to Elena for giving up her valuable time to work with us this term. We have really appreciated her effort, expertise and entertaining lessons. We look forward to catching up with her for some more mathematical magic later in the year.
