ABSTRACT. This presentation provides an overview of a National Science Foundation STEM+C project aimed at studying integration of computational thinking (CT) and computer science (CS) into elementary mathematics. This project is a collaborative effort between researchers and practitioners at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign and the UChicago STEM Education at the University of Chicago. We will provide insights into integrated lesson development, prototype learning progressions, and preliminary research findings related to teachers' experiences with implementing the integrated lessons. Lastly, we will share implications for teacher development and professional development. Everyday Computing will be participating at Infosys Foundation USA’s free teacher training initiative, Pathfinders Summer Institute, at IU Bloomington July 15-20, 2018.
