Engaging Students with Data Literacy

When students hear the word data, they may envision measurements that scientists collect, or perhaps it has something to do with the social media platforms they love. Many students struggle to understand where data comes from and how it can help us make decisions and better understand our world! They may not make a connection with computer science either. Just as

Everyone can code with SAS® CodeSnaps

SAS® CodeSnaps is an easy, affordable, and engaging tool. All you need is one iPad, the free CodeSnaps app, one Sphero robot, and a problem to solve. Students work collaboratively in teams to generate the code required to move the Sphero; they build a program using the printable coding blocks, scan it with the app, and execute the program to check their logic. CodeSnaps is accessible and appropriate for all learners across all disciplines. Get creative and challenge your students to navigate an obstacle course, find members of a word family, explore the digestive system, or travel the Oregon Trail. Your imagination is your only limitation.

Why you should add statistical learning to your machine learning tool kit

Data scientists naturally use a lot of machine learning algorithms, which work well for detecting patterns, automating simple tasks, generalizing responses and other data heavy tasks. As a subfield of computer science, machine learning evolved from the study of pattern recognition and computational learning theory in artificial intelligence. Over time, machine learning has borrowed from many

So, What Is Computer Science?

  We're kicking off Computer Science Ed Week 2018, and we couldn't be more excited! It’s hard for us to believe, but people outside the field sometimes fail to share that excitement. Again and again we’re asked, "What is computer science?" So we’ve developed an answer that will help transform those puzzled shrugs into nods

CodeSnaps: A New Way to Code!

Some people think that K-12 computer science requires a large budget, a classroom full of tablets and robots, and an experienced tech teacher. We are pleased to dispel those myths--and introduce you to CodeSnaps! CodeSnaps is a collaborative coding environment requiring only one iPad and one robot. The app takes

A Good #STEM Day

STEM, you’ve heard the acronym before, right? Well, in case you've been hibernating, STEM refers to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics; schools have promoted it for years. And every year SAS partners with a local middle school, sending out volunteers who inspire students to consider STEM careers. This year many of

What an Hour of Code Looks Like

Activities that leave classrooms full of students hungry for more are every teacher's dream. The Hour of Code again and again produces stories of engaged students, not just focused on but delighted in their work. The Hour of Code calls for critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, and problem-solving skills to

#CSEdWeek in Review

Computer science is at the heart of our day-to-day operation here at Curriculum Pathways. So we understand the market demand for talented coders, data analysts, web developers, and the like. That's why, during the recent Computer Science Education Week, we were happy to volunteer our time at local schools and  lead
